Willamette Valley 2009 Pinot Gris

Willamette Valley Vineyards Oregon 2009 Pinot Gris, $17.99-$19.99, 93 points, is almost as clear as water with just the faintest flashes of copper.
The aroma is sweet melon, kiwi, and 
hints of lichee nut, also spelled Lychee or leechi or whatever, but it is a little reddish fleshy evergreen fruit with lots of beautiful aroma.
The body is medium with some viscosity, medium acidity and is just bit sweet.
The finish is good with just a hint of Asian spice, pineapple, and sweet grapefruit.
The flavor is mostly its aroma, but is lovely, and very easy to drink by itself or with lemon baked haddock, or other Eastern sea cuisine.
