A to Z 2010 Oregon Pinot Gris, $9.34-$14.49, 91 points, is near clear with lemon/lime hues, and has this beautiful aroma of orange blossoms and light melon.
The flavor (cold) is crisp and tart citrus, but as it warms the lush textured white wine begins a metamorphosis into a light delicious orange sherbet. The acidity is fair, but this wine is more near-dry and without anything being near cloying.
Ben and I were sipping on this Pinot Gris when my son stopped over and proceeded to down-it with obvious pleasure. Now, I know the 91 point score is high, and the complexity isn't, but the flavor says "so what!" So do I! If you're tired of Sauvignon Blancs, give this a try; I'll bet "Chinese" food will be wonderful with this.
