Trentham Estate Pinot Gris 2013

It is coming up to Christmas and the events are rolling in. I had two last week and a few coming up this week so the alcohol is flowing and the cash is leaving my wallet. What I suggest is putting a mixed dozen of cheaper quaffers together so you don't brake the bank or run out of booze.

This would be in the mixed dozen for me as it offers typical Gris texture at a cheap price.

This wine is pretty simple but carries a lot of what Gris offers at a very low price. After the grapes are picked this wine is made in a fast and fresh manner as it is pressed straight to tank and inoculated. After fermentation the wine is cleaned up and put into bottle. The wine has moments of baked apples and a little peach fuzz on a medium bodied palate. The palate feels thick but is balanced well by a nice acid kick on the back-end.

Alcohol: 12%
Price: $16
Rated: 85
Drink: Now - 2015
