There’s a touch of VA here adding lift and accenting the spicy floral character of the aromas here. There’s some apple and peach fruit and even a touch of quince on the nose but this is beautifully spicy above all else. Sweet, broad and lush in the mouth with green tea and honied accents to the core of apple and quince fruit. This is a rich, powerful if not terribly large scaled wine and one that wears it’s sugar on its sleeve. A bit simple but decidedly exuberant , this is fun to drink and then shows wonderfully floral and spiced notes on the sugar lengthened finish. Fabulously friendly wine. 91pts

  • 729598Saffredi Dear Pinot Gris - , Pinot Grigio - , Grauburgunder afficionados, When at its very best this is certainly one of my favourite wines! Though some Alsacian producers make very good P.G., the best P.G.'s still come from North and Northeast Italy: Alto Adige and Friuli. Yes, Italy. We should quickley disregard any P.G. from Veneto (don't know why it sells so good in the US; must be the low price). But in Alto Adige I just recently tasted the top level P.G.'s from Tiefenbrunner Castel Turmhof (2011 and 2012) and in Friuli Isonzo the 2009, 2010 and 2011 P.G. Dessimis from Vie di Romans. Not just excellent, but truly outstanding (in my point of view). If you are used to drinking regular P.G.'s from the States or Veneto, Italy, a new world will be opening up for you when drinking the P.G.'s I just tasted. WOW !
