Erste & Neue Pinot Grigio 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very soft and subtle on the nose with a nice bed of river stones over which are layered dry wild flowers, green tea, and some gentle creamy, baked apple fruit. Wonderfully elegant on entry with nice intensity and texture but not a lot of weight. There’s a nice lightly bitter tension to the fruit here, which is decidedly fresh and brisk. The finish is a touch short but the wine’s innate sweetness drives a nice echo of fruit through the finale. A little bit less intense than many Pinot Grigio, and as such easy to dismiss, but it’s gains length and nice soil driven complexity with time and is awfully easy to enjoy. 90pts

Interesting divergence of smell and taste here. To me it had a nose of key lime pie (candied limes, sugar, meringue). But was more grapefruit on the palate, and far more acidic than it smelled. But refreshing nonetheless.

There's nothing like a crisp, dry Pinot Grigio to quench your thirst. This white is full of lovely floral aromas and citrus fruits, and it's easy to enjoy before, during and after a meal.
