Every Monday Tom Cannavan of wine-pages.com chooses a new wine of the week. For 25th June 2018 the MacMurray Estate, Russian River Pinot Gris 2016 from Sonoma in California is his Wine of the Week. The MacMurray Ranch is former home of Hollywood film star Fred MacMurray, now a wine estate in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma in California, and today owned by the Gallo family. The region is most famed for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but this Pinot Gris is very attractive, the nose suffused with a fig and quince richness, and a warming layer of baked apple as well as some spiciness. In the mouth it has loads of sweet, ripe fruit, a little toasty underpinning suggesting some lees ageing, but very good orange acidity that gives the wine’s considerible length and concentration very good balance to the finish.
