Production of Adelsheim’s 2012 Pinot Gris dropped by nearly 40% vis-a-vis its 2011 predecessor on account not just of lower yields due to a small set, but also of having jettisoned a major grape contract. Honeydew and apple inflected by rind and pit piquancy offer a juicy and refreshing performance, if neither especially complex nor cepage-distinctive. Plan to enjoy this over the next 9-12 months.

Quite tart when it hits the lips, this is nonetheless a dense, flavorful Pinot Gris, tasting of grapefruit, sour orange, apple and green banana. It shows lots of juice and powers through the mid-palate into a fruit-driven finish.
