Wine Review: This straw colored Pinot Grigio from Alto Adige is very nice. It opens with a faint lemon-lime bouquet with hints of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused Anjou pear with notes of citrus and a hint of lemon verbena. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This very good Pinot Grigio would pair nicely with linguini with white wine clam sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale straw yellow in colour with an attractive aroma of citrus fruits, peach and honeydew melon; medium rich, fruity and direct on the palate with orchard fruit flavours and tangy acidity on the finish. Food choices: Sip as an aperitif or enjoy with fennel and orange salad, grilled sea bass, pasta, marinated squid salad and a variety of poultry dishes.
