Wine of the Week: Handley, Anderson Valley, Pinot Gris
12:00 AM CST on Wednesday, December 12, 2007
After working with ace winemakers Dick Arrowood and Jed Steele, Milla Handley started a winery in Mendocino's Anderson Valley and made the first vintage in her garage in 1982. She makes this pear-flavored pinot gris fat and sassy, fermenting most of the grapes in neutral oak to give the wine a creamy texture. Pair it with tom kai gai – Thai chicken soup in a coconut broth – and fresh ginger, and prepare to fall in love at first sip. Available at Corner Wines, Mr. G's Beverage Center and Pogo's Wine & Spirits. - Rebecca Murphy94 Points in Wine & Spirits (August 2007)
