Three Pears pinot gris review

Three Pears pinot gris reviewHere’s a 2009 California pinot gris that costs $9.50. or $10.00, or $12 (my cost).

The Wineguider survey is clear!  You want more pinot gris reviews.  (Or pinot grigio — they are the exact same thing.)  So, here you go:  Three Pears scores quickly because it’s not merely alcohol-flavored water, as many of these wines seem to be.  It’s not a face-full of pear flavor, thankfully.  It’s on the sweeter and heavier side for a pinot gris, but compared to other wines, it’s not sweet or heavy at all.  

I learned about Three Pears from super-friendly Kim, at Hockessin Liquors in Delaware.  She absolutely loves it, even though she dislikes pears.  Usually, people don’t “absolutely love” pinot gris, so that caught my interest.  What do others say?  This website calls Three Pears “crisp” and “dry,” but they are lying to your face.  This review calls it “sprightly” and says you’ll get flavors of pear, citrus and apple.  That’s better.  The winemaker’s website mentions pear.

This wine isn’t crazy-good, but it’s good.  Its flavors are mild, so it could be seen as slightly boring.  But I like its relaxed, slightly sweet, pear and apple mojo.  And so, other than Lagaria, Jacob’s Creek and The Birdman, Three Pears is the only pinot gris/grigio so far recommended by your Wineguider.  Enjoy!
