The 2010 Pinot gris, Vitae Springs Vineyard has concentrated ground spice notes and a bit of chili pepper-like heat along with pear, apple, melon, and hints of orange peel aromas. Apple, pear, white flowers and melon flavors are backed by a core of minerality. Backed by a stong backbone of fresh acidity, its fruit is balanced with spice and minerals. Completely dry, it is both textural and persistent in the mouth. Bottled in late June with a bit of CO2, its fruit will continue to evolve for many months. It is a great match for salmon, pork, fish, and Asian-influenced foods and dishes with spicy notes.
There are three white wines beginning with the stainless steel fermented and aged 2010 Pinot Gris Vitae Springs Vineyard. Pear, apple, and floral notes inform the nose of a concentrated, dry, savory wine in which a note of tangerine zest adds a touch of complexity. Drink this vibrant effort over the next 3-4 years. All of these whites wines are outstanding values.
