This takes a while to open up, but when it finally does it delivers a pleasant nose of white flowers and orchard fruit and subdued flavours of apple, pear, apricot, and lemon, with some citrus zest and pith livening things up a bit on the back end, as well as a very light mineral streak (perhaps derived from the volcanic terroir). It's dry and certainly refreshing with food, restrained and unobtrusive, and it's actually quite nice to encounter a Pinot Gris, in contrast to the more common Pinot Grigio, that keeps its fruity sweetness in check. Fine overall, if lacking anything truly distinctive.
