Taste profile from the winemaker: "The winemaking team focuses on the refreshing crisp minerality and fruity peach undertones for which the varietal is known. A cool-fermentation follows in stainless steel to retain the Pinot Grigio’s bright, fruit forward character. The resulting wine has a refreshing bite of juicy white peach and citrus, finishing with a flinty-minerality."

ABC Wines review: This pinot grigio opens with a fresh cut apple fragrance. A bit on the sweet side, the flavors are of tropical fruits, notably pineapple. The finish is smooth and somewhat crisp and dry. Though this wine isn't likely to win any awards, it's an ideal picnic wine or one to serve with a sandwiches or a light snack. Our score: Average.
