Waterbrook 2007 Pinot Gris Columbia Valley, Washington

Bookmark and Share  Waterbook is a Walla Walla Washington winery that has established a reputation as a maker of "premium value" wine. The winery has been around for 25 years and has grown from a family operation to an internationally recognized brand.

We picked up this Pinot Gris for a very wallet-friendly $5.99 from the close-out section of Andersons. We're big fans of Washington wine and the price was simply too good to pass up.

Pinot Gris is the same grape as Pinot Grigio, but the Pinot Grigio is typically a brighter and lighter wine.

The Waterbrook is a very respectable Pinot Gris. It has a bit of grassy flavor and is fresh and acidic leading to a clean finish. It has a dash of minerality which distinguishes it from some of the watery value brand Pinot Grigio.

Speaking of watery, Green Dragon was enjoying a glass of the Waterbrook Pinot Gris while taking a bubble bath and unfortunately spilled the entire glass into the bathwater. Her skin came out soft and slightly fruity.

This is a superior value and a nice middle-tier wine.
