Kendall-Jackson 2014 Pinot Gris, Vintners Reserve, California
Anchored by grapes from Monterey’s cool, windswept vineyards (78% Monterey County), Pinot Gris’ wide range of fruit flavors and naturally bright acidity take center stage. A unique and zesty blend of 80% Pinot Gris, 9% Chardonnay, 6% Roussanne, 4% Viognier and 1% Marsanne, all stainless steel fermentated to retain the vivid fruit qualities and bright, juicy texture, enhancing the pear, honeydew and tangerine flavors. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 90 points saying "A dynamic balance between ripe, juicy fruit flavors and crisp acidity makes this medium-bodied wine both refreshing and substantive. It smells like a bowl of sliced melons, apples and grapes. After 79% Pinot Gris, the winemaker blends in Roussanne, Grüner Veltliner and a bit of Chardonnay." An ideal summer wine!
