HAHN SLH PINOT GRIS 2007


The Grade: AMAZING. The Mojo: The Hahn SLH Pinot Gris 2007 is a beautifully-crafted white wine from the Santa Lucia Highlands in California. From one of our favorite wineries, the folks at Hahn have come up with a stunning effort in this medium-bodied white wine. 100% Pinot Gris and aged completely in stainless steel tanks, it's all about the gorgeous single-vineyard fruit, with its soft, supple notes of honeysuckle and white flowers on the nose, followed luxuriously by hints of nectarine, pineapple, star fruit, lemon and slight splashes of herbs on the palate. It leads you toward a cresendo of smooth, supple spice and balanced fruit and acidity on the finish for a wine that is perfect for oyster roasts, grilled fish or just a hot, summer night on the deck.

Thanks Kevin for the kind words about the 2007 SLH Pinot Gris. In fact we were pouring this wine at the Santa Lucia Highlands Fling over the weekend and it got raves all around. Check out our group on Facebook: I'm a fan of Hahn Family Wines.

We just chose this wine as a 1000 Corks wine of the week, and your review of "amazing" was a large part of the reason why.

(So is our general love of all things Hahn).
