Our 2007 Mirassou California Pinot Grigio shows how refreshing a Pinot Grigio can be. It's a crisp, clean wine that features subtle peach and citrus flavors. This versatile wine pairs beautifully with spicy dishes as well as grilled poultry or seafood. Our Pinot Grigio is ready to enjoy immediately upon release and should be able to age in the bottle for up to one year.
"A lovely wine to have at picnics, on the beach, backyard barbecues, even at the table with everything from fried calamari and goat cheese to roast pork and fresh fruit. Completely dry and racy in acids, it shows intense, nervy flavors of citrus fruits and zest, with spicy notes of medjool dates." 90 Points,
I felt this wine was a bit too heavy for a pinot grigio. It was also missing the normal crisp flavor of this type of wine
This wine has become a standard in my kitchen and frequently pairs with light dishes that won't overpower this tasty but light wine. White fish with red peppers, a little garlic, olive oil, and lemon pair nicely when I don't have a Marlborough Sav-blanc around. It also goes well with mild cheeses.
This is a dry pinot grigio.I usually go for fruitier, but this one grew on me. My husband, who only drinks, took to it immediately. Will definitely order a case if available.
