While tasting this wine and making some notes, I got to thinking; when did I first consider this particular variety (I include the Pinot Gris style as well in that thought)? Having been involved with wine shows over quite a few years now, the only thing I could think of was there must have been a standout wine at the show that I just had to try. The other thing of note when it comes to a Pinot Grigio is, my wife and I can be quite fussy. We like the variety and I can happily report, this one received four thumbs up from the two occupants of the Peters household.
Bright, fresh and plentiful aromas of (pleasantly surprising) lemons and limes made me wonder what I as actually going to be tasting for a Grigio. I say this only because (and I know it’s not a good habit to get into) I have come to expect certain aromas from this wine variety.
Plenty of flavour to savour on the palate that’s for sure. That lemonyness is present here as well along with some pear like influence and good taste-bud pleasing texture. There’s a slight herbal influence too as it finishes crisp and dry with a longing for more. The deliciousness dial has been turned all the way to the right!
