Handy In The Kitchen
Boy, I used to love the way Grandma would cook everything in Pinot Gris.
I can still see that big old coffee tin with the words Old World Winery 2010 Pinot Gris written on a piece of paper taped to the side. Seems like every time you walked into her house, she was fryin’ something up in the stuff. Green beans, hamburgers, whatever she had on hand… If it was in her pan, it was in the Pinot Gris.
It always smelled so good, too! That intense aroma of apricots, nectarine, and orange blossom honey, enhanced with just a hint of thyme would make my mouth water every time! You just knew that every bite of her cooking was going to just burst with subtlety sweet tropical fruit flavor, and with such a crisp, dry finish. Sure, it may not have been the healthiest way to cook in the world but, man, it sure was one of the tastiest. And when she was done, she’d bust out the cheesecloth and drain the pan back into the…
Wait a second. I might be getting my greases confused. This Old World Winery 2010 Pinot Gris 3 Pack doesn’t exactly look like my grandmother’s can at all. Well, whatever. I’m sure it’s a lot better to drink than whatever she was using to cook with.

Extended contact with the skins gives this rich Pinot Gris a peach hue. The aroma is an intense mix of apricots, nectarine and orange blossom honey with a background of thyme. The attack is subtlely sweet and bursting with tropical fruit, but the finish is dry and crisp, making this the perfect summer wine.
