The 2011 vintage shows a golden blonde hue. Aromas of melon, honeysuckle and pink lemonade get the refreshing mental picture started with a clean ocean minerality and lemon cream finish. An oak note of toasted meringue contributes to the wine's complexity. The wine drinks of honeydew melon and minerality with a round middle and definite clean finish. The wine shows a light to medium weight with a richness and breadth that satisfies. In a word... delicious!
Pair this wine with fresh fish sauteed in a little butter and lemon. Fresh crab, oysters or clam chowder would make nice pairings as well. Grilled chicken or chicken salad would be lovely for lunch. Finally, a simple pizza or pasta with white sauce would do well with the richness and acidity of the wine.
Light & Crisp
This Pinot Grigio was clean and refreshing. There were notes of fruit and bright citrus notes. Very smooth and enjoyable.
Total letdown, winemakers notes not accurate. I know that they try to put the wines in a good light but this is a very boring Pino
