Taste profile from the winemaker: "Aromatic with citrus and white-flower notes, light bodied with crisp lemon-zest flavors and a clean lingering finish, this classic Pinot Grigio elegant when served as an aperitif or provides the perfect pairing for seafood appetizers, fish, white meats, and grilled poultry."

ABC Wines review: Lightly scented with citrus aromas, this pinot grigio's tastes are dominated by a very tart, almost bitter, grapefruit flavor. There's a bit of mineral crispness but it's hard to discern. The wine is very dry, exceedingly so. The finish is acidic and unpleasant. Not quite undrinkable, but close. Our score: Inferior.

Winery website: Not found. An image of the bottle could not be located.
