This wine is one of my favorites in our Oriel portfolio; I think it is so interesting compared to others I have sampled (Santa Margherita, Tieffenbruner, Jermann, Kris, Villa Doretta, etc) because of the added Chardonnay and Fruilano components. It gives it an added complexity, a little green apple and mineral characteristic that really complement the Pinot Grigio tropical fruit and citrus flavors.

No need to be verbose,on my tasting experience with this delightful wine;'Oh I remember it well".Picture this a hot So.Cal day a hungry man,red tipped lettuce,with fresh spinach, cucumbers,tomatoes,leftover of baked chicken and grated parmesan cheese. Then to bring this meal to completion I then opened a bottle of this most satisfying wine,the marriage of the meal and the wine was one of sheer joy.the wine was chilled and fruity,not overly oakey.Do not take my word-TRY IT.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aroma: Seductive floral notes with hints of citrus and a fresh mineral core. Taste: Elegant and crisp with flavors of green apple and pear and a bold finish. Name story: Portia is derived from the Latin word for "gift" and is the name that Shakespeare gave to his brilliant and beautiful heroine from this splendid region in "The Merchant of Venice." Vineyards and winemaking: Hillside vineyards planted in rocky marl and sandstone soils bordered by Slovenia to the east and the Adriatic to the south. Temperature-controlled fermentation and partial malolactic fermentation.
