2011 Guild Winemakers White Wine Columbia Valley Lot #6

The Lot #6 Pinot Gris/Riesling blend shows the brighter side of the regionally-cool 2011 vintage. In this blend, the leaner, citrusy Gris is rounded out with an aromatic Riesling. A focused entry and clean finish bookend an intriguingly-full mid-palate. Aromas of tropical fruit, citrus blossom and lime zest are followed by flavors of Granny Smith apples & ripe pears. Try with alpine cheeses or a dish dressed in a spicy cream sauce.
