Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio 2017

Member Review by raindance:

Gift from the Mason's in Feb. 2018. Way better than the average from this varietal. This paired well with salmon and a veggie lasagna entree.

Located along the NC coast, Lumina Winery is a small winery dedicated to the production of quality wines. 0ur wine shop offers free wine tasting, selling by the glass, and internet sales. We also have wine & beer kits for the home winemaker or brewer. Lumina Winery is the ONLY award-winning winery in Wilmington that makes wine from real grapes. Lumina Winery produces wine using a variety of different sources. We use fresh grapes from the Yadkin Valley Appellation here in North Carolina. We also use Pender and Beaufort County, NC grapes for our Muscadine Wines. In 2008, we crushed over 9000 pounds of grapes for wine production and sold over 8,200 bottles of wine! We also use imported, certified, varietal grape juice from California (Lodi Area). For our fruit-flavored wines, we use wine kits which are produced for home winemakers. These kits are available for sale. The majority of our fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. For wines that require oaking, we add oak cubes into the wine or age the wine in 59 gallon oak barrels. We are a full service winery as well as a home winemaking & beer making supply store. We offer free daily wine tastings, and are open Tuesday through Saturday 11 am to 7 pm. Read less

Great price for this Pinot Grigio. Got it on sale at a local grocery store for around $8. Light bodied and refreshing with hints of citrus, pear, and peach. Very nice wine.

Colour: Straw yellowAroma: Intense, clean notes of meadow flowers, pears and pleasant hints of golden apple. The bouquet is fresh and fragrant, yet complex, showing refined notes of sage and mint, with a nice touch of mineralinty typical of Pinot Grigio.Tasting profile: On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied with an elegant structure, offering fresh, crisp acidity with notes of lemon and safe on the finish. Excellent paired alongside seafood, grilled chicken or a summer salad. - Winery

Lumina means "Illumination of the moon." The label's quartered-moon icon represents the ancient alchemist's symbol for this planet. It is an innovative addition to Ruffino's top quality white wine portfolio.

Straw yellow in color. On the nose this wine exhibits intense floral notes followed by aromas of citrus and pear. Refined notes of minerality are balanced with hints of pineapple and sage, making Lumina a medium-bodied wine with a lean and lasting finish.

Basic Pinot Grigio - light in body, with simple fruity flavors of apple, pear, melon and citrus. Very clean and fresh.

The price has come down on Ruffinorsquo;s Lumina this year, and thatrsquo;s great news for consumers. This expression of Pinot Grigio pushes all the usual buttons: the wine is compact, luminous and redolent of citrus, pear and peach.
