Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before opening. Almost clear, just a tiny hint of lemon yellow. Nice fresh grass and ripe melon aromas. Gentle citrus fruit and smooth melon taste. Medium-long crisp finish. A VERY delicious Pinot Grigio that was well balanced, easy drinking and a wonderful sipping wine.

    She said: From the first fruity flavor to the slightly tart finish this wine was delightful. The taste had layers of melon, tropical fruit and citrus that came into play as the wine passed over the palate. With medium body and dryness the wine was good with the mussels but best sipped alone. This was on of the most enjoyable Pinot Grigios we have had in a long time and I look forward to another bottle.
