Helfrich Alsace Pinot Gris, 2007

I like Pinot Gris; my wife likes Pinot Grigio, which is usually a much, much different wine even though the two are made from the same grape. This Helfrich Pinot Gris from Alsace suits me to a T even if it does have some residual sugar as many wines from Alsace do these days.

It's a medium deep gold color, just about right for its age. Blossoming smells of ripe pears, flowers and minerals. Pinot Gris strength and size. On the palate, it's rich with those hard to describe flavors that are typical of Pinot Gris...but not Pinot Grigio. Too sweet, she says. Just right, I say.
