Wine of the Week: 2012 Willakenzie Estate Pinot Gris
Willakenzie Estates has been making world class Pinot Noir for many years but they surprise people with the quality of their Pinot Gris. This wine is so consistent that it achieved 90 point scores from Wine Spectator, Wine Advocate and Wine Enthusiast magazines. I'd say they're all dead on with their ratings.
For those of you who want a fresh, lithe, fruity and light summer white wine, this is a great option. This wine is easy to find and should be available at some grocery stores such as QFC, as well as most Pacific Northwest wine shops. Hard to find a better Pinot Gris in this price range.
