Billsboro Winery‘s 2012 Pinot Gris ($16) is an under-stated wine that shows delicate aromas of mandarin orange and pink grapefruit backed by lightly floral notes and and interesting blanched-almond quality that emerges as the wine warms.

Light-bodied and with just a bit of residual sugar (1%) that shows on the mid-palate, it’s fresh and lightly fruity with apricot, grapefruit and citrus blossom flavors.  The finish shows a bit of pithy citrus that combines with vivacious acidity to help it finish dry and refreshing.

    Hands down one of the best Pinot Gris in the Finger Lakes! The RS gives it some weight on the palate but doesn’t diminish the higher than average acidity. Great with whole roasted chicken and flash roasted brussel sprouts or sitting on the porch with cheese and fresh picked black raspberries. Great summer evening wine!
