Very nice nose, fruity on the tongue with good finish. Just the right amount of tartness.
This Grigio is such a comfort to me. I first found it while on my honeymoon in Ocho Rios and it continues to be a favorite of mine. The bouquet is very floral, such a highlight of a typical pinot gris. This wine has a very delicate bouquet of white floral and mineral nodes that pair perfectly with eachother and leave your senses relaxed and excited to take it first sip. At first sip, the wine is very crisp and has a mouthwatering peach taste with hints of pear. You can detect the pineapple and mango also and there is a suttle sweetness to this wine from all the fruit. It ends with more floral nodes and the crisp, wet taste of the peach. The end is full bodied, yet the taste doesnt linger. It leaves your pallet wanting more. Its very relaxing, as if youre sitting on a veranda in the Mediteranian. In all, this is a very good Grigio that goes beyond its $11 price tag. It is a very simple, uncomplicated wine that stands well on its own or pair with the proper foods. Alough very good on its own, I have paired this wine with such things as pasta and pork chops(orange zest & marjoram)
It is very sweet!
