Remember when we met an undrinkable, banana syrup chardonnay, and then turned around and thoroughly enjoyed a lean, acidic Sancerre (French sauvignon blanc)? A refreshment and a relief, we called it. This pinot gris from Oregon happened to be on the table at the same time, and it too was a lithe, bright, fruity and prickly refreshment, so good I felt it certainly deserved its own small post. And here it is.
Retail, about $17.
