The 2014 REX HILL Vendage Tardive Pinot Gris possesses a deep yellow color with some flashes of pale gold. Striking aromas of white peaches, apricots, acacia honey, truffles, candied orange peel, honey and magnolias leap from the glass. Buckwheat honey, truffle, pear, greengage plums, sage, aloe vera and tropical fruit notes come out as the wine sits in the glass and begins to open. In the mouth, the wine is sweet and intense with great lift and lightness due to the beautifully balancing acidity. The mid-palate shows poise and concentration from the old vines and perfect 2014 vintage with complexity and minerality that linger on and on.
A perfect way to start and finish your meal, the last 2014 REX HILL Vendage Tardive Pinot Gris will reward patient cellaring for the next 20 years.
