Great NW Wines - Sawtooth Pinot Gris

Sawtooth Winery 2012 Pinot Gris, Snake River Valley, $14

Best Buy! Idaho has only recently begun to increase its production of Pinot Gris, which has become so popular in other Northwest regions. And this is a delicious example of why the Snake River Valley could prove to be a strong contendor with the bright white grape. This opens with aromas of fruit cocktail, lime zest and lychee, followed by flavors of pear, cherry and pineapple. It’s all backed with bright acidity. Pair this with trout, salmon or scallops.
