Castelfeder Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2011

Member Review by jtryka:

2011 Castelfeder Pinot Grigio, tasted with Ines Giovanett of Castelfeder - this wine was much different that many of the pinor gris or pinot grigio I've tried (and those who know me know I've tried very few). The wine has great fresh, crisp aromas of light fruit, peach and grass and some light floral notes. The taste is quite complex, and I think round would be a great word to describe it, as it's not nearly as sharp and acidic as many domestic examples. As the wine opens up a bit, the minerality of the region really comes through. A great white wine, perfect for late summer or early fall. See my summary of the VT on my blog here: http://allaloneonaplanetfullofpeople.blogspot.com/2012/08/snooth-alto-adige-virtual-tasting.html
