I’ve been through this so many times before that it becomes rote. The differences between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio. Well, there really aren’t any, when we are referring to the grapes. One is the name in French while the other is the name in Italian. When it comes to the wines though, there remains some distinction, though that is disappearing... Read More
Dusty with a touch of resin on the nose over leafy green herb flecked apple aromas along with hints of mint. Elegant and refined in th enough, this is subtle but well defined on the palate with clear white apple and Asian pear flavors that are wrapped around subtle mineral and bitter apple seed notes.

Mainly made from shiraz, but with a few from merlot, malbec and chambercin, these wines go throug... Read More

Medium lemon color. Medium intensity of honey, bosc pear, a faint layer of smoke, violets and minerality. Dry on the palate with crisp acidity. Nicely integrated alcohol of a medium level give the Georgia's Paddock Riesling the perfect weight to carry the prnonounced mineral character on the palate, with its oscillating flowery notes, which seem...
