Robert Sinskey Vin Gris of Pinot Noir 2017
No matter what time of year, cutting the foil on that first bottle of Vin Gris feels like the unofficial Spring kick-off. Once the cork is pulled and the wine is poured, the glass exudes an aromatic bouquet of spring flowers, summer gardens and fall orchards where white strawberry, green apple, peach and guava meet higher tones of orange blossom, lemon verbena and lilac. The first sip leads with a tang of white pineapple and candied peach before giving way to a juicy, bursting midpalate loaded with soft citrus notes like kaffir lime and blood orange. Grapefruit zest, kumquat and yellow rose drive home a clean, refreshing finish. This versatile wine can be dressed up or dressed down and is perfect anytime you would like a delicious wine to go with your favorite foods.
