2008 Maryhill Pinot Gris

Clear, medium intensity straw yellow with hints of green; Clean aromas, medium-soft intensity - a little citrus, lots of pear, sliced apple, delicate floral, fresh pistachio (very slight), and a little oxidation; Dry, medium-light body, medium acidity that gives way to a more rounded texture, medium alcohol; medium intense flavors of lime, unripe peach, a little pineapple, green apple, and that same floral note from the nose. Medium finish. A nice wine, refreshing, perhaps just a little over the hill. Pair with creamy cheese and herbs as an aperitif.
