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.

Nice white. Goes well with Indian food.

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

Pale, bright straw-yellow. Aromatic nose combines orange blossom, fresh hay, honey and a whiff of flowers; a suggestion of alcohol quickly dissipated. The dry, intense palate offers flavors similar to the aromas, turning firmer and more precise with air. Good classic pinot grigio.

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.

The 2009 Pinot Grigio is a light golden color. The nose is scented with grapefruit and pear, and on the palate orange fruits come to the forefront. Mango and orange zest are accented by notes of guava and a pronounced minerality. The wonderful acidity and full-bodied texture carry through a delicious lemony finish with hints of apricot. This wine will be at its peak from now through the end of 2012. - Winery

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