History of the grape: Pinot Gris was planted in Burgundy, France as far back as the 1300s.

  • But then again 2012 and 2014 are hardly all that much 'older vintage's ... ... and drink now!').Pinot Grigio, what's to be said. My first experience was with travel damaged versions back at the beginning of the '80s, and wasn't impressed. If I've had (only) 100 bottles since then, maybe five, at most, were memorable.

    Light floral aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest and melon on the nose. Very sharp in the mouth with an aggressive fizzy attack that smooths and mellows on the mid palate imparting fresh sweet spice and fruit notes of melon, peach, apricot, green apple and lemon. A refreshing wine with zesty acidity and an approachable style, finishing clean with l... Read More
