This is fairly mineral on the nose with a nice contrast of stemmy apple fruit and some hints of pineapple. Light in the mouth and a touch soft, this is inoffensive but innocuous with lightly creamy peach flavors on the mid-palate and a hint of sweet nuttiness on the modest finish. 78pts

QPR city. Tastes like a $30 Napa Chardonnay. Nice vanilla grapefruit with a sweet caramel finish. Paired it with fried fish filets and have no complaints.

This is one of my favorite Pinot Grigios. It's not quite as fruity as some but has a lot of depth to it. It kind of reminds me of a Chardonnay.

Light bodied wine that is on the sweet side. Noted hints of pineapple and other tropical fruits. Balanced acidity helped to make the wine more rounded and enjoyable. Not a bad pinot grigio for the price.

Peaches dominate, there's some residual sugar here, but its not overpoweringly sweet. Good acidity helps keep it balanced and there's solid minerality on the nose. Spice on the finish, which is fairly long but a bit chemically at the very end.

This is a fuller Pinot Grigio. We enjoyed it with a chicken and shrimp salad. Not as light and sharp as others. Smelt, felt and tasted like the chardonnay it embodies. Nice table white.

The 2010 Pinot Grigio is a honey-straw color. The nose is a lovely blend of apricot, lemon zest, vanilla, and honeysuckle. Hints of Asian spice fill the mouth and the wonderful minerality and full-bodied texture carry through a delicious lemony finish with hints of white peach from the Albarino. - WineryBLEND:92% Pinot Grigio8% Albarino ** SOLD OUT **

I do not know of a better Pinot Grigio produced in the New World than Lunarsquo;s 1998. Cropped at 3 tons per acre, as opposed to the normal 6ndash;10, this wine tips the scales at a powerful 14.1% alcohol. What makes it terrific is the fact that it was fermented with indigenous yeast, thus giving it more aromatic dimension as well as a creamier mid-palate and finish. This 1998 also possesses a sumptuous nose of orange rinds, lemon butter, honey and nuts. Full-bodied, with a chewy texture and gorgeous fruit, this wine, aged on its lees for 8 months and bottled unfiltered, is a juicy, pleasure-filled Pinot Grigio.

There is not a better Pinot Grigio being produced ion the New World than Lunarsquo;s. The finest they have made to date, the stunning 2001 Pinot Grigio offers aromas and flavors of orange marmalade intermixed with honeysuckle. This fresh, medium to full-bodied effort is an example of a hedonistic dry white at it finest.

Long known for their Pinot Grigio, Luna Vineyards consistently produces good quality Pinot Grigio, not normally associated with the Napa Valley.

Leesy aromas of lemon, honey and hay, with hints of dried fruits. Supple, very ripe and layered, with a flavor of lemon drop. Distinctly fat for Pinot Gris but has complexity and sound supporting acidity. This was fermented in barrel, with little use of SO2.

Pale yellow gold, rich, slightly tropical aromas of orange and nuts. Fat, smoky and thick, with exotic fruits and marzipan leavened by firm mineral spice. A touch of sweetness (4 grams per liter r.s.) is nicely balanced by sound acidity. Concentrated, almost honeyed pinot grigio with lovely richness and length. this was fermented in barrel with wild yeasts; half of the wine went through malolactic barrel with wild yeasts; half of the wine went through malolactic fermentation.
