Very light yellow in the glass.  The nose is lemony, bright and green apple.  The palate is not as I expected- it’s got some citrus, but not overly tart.  I get pineapple instead of the expected apple and lemon.  There’s a hint of green melon and gooseberry.  The midpalate has a waxy mouthfeel that makes the chilled wine seem warm.  The finish is rather short but flavorful.  That gooseberry note picks up and the acidity kicks in a touch.  This is a really tasty Pinot Gris that has a bit of weight to it.  I’m digging it. 88 points and 4 stars for this $12 effort.  Drink with chilled shrimp or some fresh shucked oysters.  Salut….
