Wapato Point Cellars 2008 Pinot Grigio


In the glass, the Wapato Point Cellars 2008 Pinot Grigio Lake Chelan AVA (13.8%) was a clear, yellow golden color, delivering notes of tropical fruit, with hints of coconut, pineapple and melon being most predominant.

In the mouth, this Lake Chelan pinot gris was a bit viscous, with good acidity. Unfortunately, the coconut notes were replayed in full form, making this wine taste like a pina colada. It was just too tropical fruity for my taste (maybe from the yeast used?).

We paired this wine with pasta and tomato sauce as well as a red leaf lettuce salad dressed with olive oil/vinegar and grated apples. At $22, I would pass on another bottle, for this wine wasn't my taste preference in pinot gris/grigio nor do I believe it offers a reasonable QPR.
