14% alc, deep lemon color. Great nose/herb/spice/white stonefruit/long finish. Went terrific with oysters in black bean sauce. More notes to come asap.
14 courses, 20 wines total.
Pinot gris with oysters is counter-intuitive. But Carl von Schubert once suggested at a tasting here that his mature Spätlese was wonderful with oysters which is even more counter-intuitive. Was this GB/PG bone dry?
