Hogue Cellars Pinot Grigio Columbia Valley 2009

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

This affordable, straightforward white wine is fresh and crisp, buoyed up with tart acids and flavors of citrus rind, pears, and green apples. It has a bit more concentration than its budget-priced Washington competitors, and the vibrant, clean fruit flavors match well with a wide variety of summer dishes.

THE HOGUE CELLARSā„¢, founded in 1982 by Mike and Gary Hogue, is located in Eastern Washington's Columbia Valley, the premiere grape growing region of the state. The climate and soils of the Columbia Valley produce grapes with intense fruit flavors and high natural acidity. The wines have a liveliness and ripe, zesty fruit flavors that make them ideal complements to a wide range of food.

Hogue is making a lot of Pinot Grigio, maybe the most in the state, done in a tart, high acid style with emphasis on fruit skin flavors - lemon zest, orange peel, pear skin and green apples. A fine food wine.

Another fine effort in a continuing series of outstanding PGs from Hogue. This is tart and stylish, loaded with citrus and bracingly acidic. Flavors meld lemon, lime, lemon verbena, orange peel and a slice of pear.

This is fresh and crisp, with some nice citrus skin flavors under green apple fruit. Nothing too fancy here; but it's clean and sound and perfectly fine served chilled with a seafood salad.

Bright and lively, with zingy lemon, pear and almond flavors, finishing with a refreshing lilt.

Light and crisp, with lemony pear flavors on a lively frame. Drink now.

A fine example of why this fresh, fruity variety is gaining new fans. Apple and melon flavors are round and supple, with a creamy texture. Crisp acids make everything perky.
