Our 2015 Olson Vineyard Pinot Gris has a light gold color, a rich complex aroma with honeysuckle blossoms and lemon notes, followed by nuances of fresh figues and apples and a delicate touch of dried cooking herbs. The flavors are anchored by a juicy acidity, balancing the sweetness, framing rich floral and green apple notes. The texture is bright, elegant and graceful. The finish is very long with delicate ripe flavors of chardonnay like richness.
