Taste profile from the winemaker: "A crisp and refreshing wine with bright aromas and flavors of citrus and fresh green apple. Hints of gasmine complement a bright, delicate, flavorful finish. A perfect match with poultry, seafood, spicy pasta, and pizza."

ABC Wines review: Pale to the point of being colorless, this non-vintage pinot grigio is an unexpected treat. Soft floral citrus and freshly cut apple aromas are followed by the crisp, clean taste of stone dried fruit with a hint of herbs. The finish is semi-dry and tart but not noteworthy. Not a complex wine to be sure but given the price paid (2 for the price of 1) it is an unbeatable value. Serve well chilled alone, with appetizers, or with a sandwich or light salad. Our score: Above Average.

Note: Despite winning multiple awards, this wine is not listed on the Barefoot wine website.
