2012 Mason "Three Pears" Pinot Grigio
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Pinot Gris Three Pears exhibits a similar personality, but the predominant aroma is pears. There are 18,000 cases of this dry, fruity, elegant, satisfying white. It would be perfect as an aperitif or at the beginning of a meal.
From Mason Winery: "Long, cool fermentation in 100% stainless steel tanks, capture the expressive, clean fruit flavors characteristic of vineyards in this area. Harvested at lower brix, the natural acid levels [complement] the crisp apple and pears flavors of our Three Pears. The lengthy fermentation produces wines with great balance, clean mid-palates, rounded out by a slight sweetness. Aromatics of crisp pear, pippin apple and citrus. Nectarous pears, peaches and apples combine in a rich mouthfeel, complemented by a savory acidity"
