Wine Blogging Wednesday #10 is being hosted by Alice of My Adventures in the Breadbox and the theme that she selected was white wines that are made from Pinot grapes such as Pinot Gris or Pinot Blanc.

My selection for this event was made easy by this being the only bottle of Pinot Gris I had sitting in my cellar, and me running out of time to go out and find something else!

Tasting Note: A pale straw colour with a tinge of green. Strong aromas of fresh apples and pears comprised the bouquet. The palate was well structured and had excellent length from start to finish.

Drinking Window: Drinking well now, but may improve in complexity with another year in the bottle.

Verdict: It has got a fair amount of class and I deem it worthy of 91 points, with a value rating of Excellent.

See “How to interpret my scores” for an explanation of how the above scores were reached.

I’m looking forward to the roundup being posted by Alice for this event in the next couple of days.
