Winemaker's Notes:

The Terra d'Oro 2012 Pinot Grigio is vibrant with terrific mineral details. A powerful nose of fresh Bosc pear, peaches and orange blossom—reminiscent of a fragrant citrus grove—leads to a flavorful palate of ripe white pear and lemon zest. The wine is rich and elegant, but well balanced with crisp acidity.

For a delightful and mouth-watering pairing, serve the Terra d'Oro 2012 Pinot Grigio with creole shrimp with garlic and lemon or with a mild cheese and fruit plate.

About Terra d'Oro:

For more than 150 years, fortune seekers have been lured to California's rugged Sierra Foothills. Though they once came for the gold, these days they come for the wine—Terra d'Oro, to be more specific. Handcrafted from some of Amador County's most historic vineyards, Terra d'Oro wines are rich indeed, full of the character and intensity that perfectly captures the essence of this "Land of Gold."
