Favorite under $25 Pinot Grigio. Crisp apple, strawberry, with nice finish. Very drinkable, quality wine. 2013.

Nose of; bright lemon, big sense of dry cut grass and earthiness, candle wax and yellow florals. On the palate; lemon & lime juice, white peach, ripe pineapple, candle wax, dry cut grass, light presence of honey, limestone, gritty earth and minerals, oily body, big acidity and a decent finish. Bought this to make my Veal Bolognese. Photos of one of their vineyards, barrel room, Pinot Gris grapes and those vineyard field hands that work so hard all season and then some.

Almost no perceptible scents on the nose. Very light and slightly green with subtle citrus.

Haha! Luv it when Delictable hasn't seen my wines before. Well, this wasn't $hit. Quite frankly on its 25th bday it was more interesting than several Pernand-Vergelesses.,Pouilly-Fume, high end Macon blancs and a few Chassagne-Montrachets I can think of. No oxidation whatsoever. Aromas were light, to be expected, but the palate remained fresh and true to varietal nature: citrus, crisp green apple, young pear on the palate. In the end I remain rather encouraged about the modest aging potential for a wine whose production numbers can reach in excess of 6,000,000 cases!

Chill it. Drink it. Love it.
Best Pinot Grigio have had outside of Italy.
Bought at Total Wine
*Have now had twice. Paired with a rich risotto the second time. Paired well with the salty / buttery flavor in the risotto.
