Elevation Ten 2013 Pinot Grigio

December 28th, 2014 | No Comments

Elevation Ten 2013 Pinot Grigio Looks dainty in the glass. Is that banana in there? The nose is passively inviting. Some citrus notes dabble and maybe a bit of green apple to keep things interesting. She feels dry and clean like a fall breeze. The green apple grows on the mid-palate. Sharply snappy and plucky. Retail: […]

Julietta Winery 2013 Pinot Grigio

October 28th, 2014 | No Comments

Julietta Winery 2013 Pinot Grigio Delicate citrus notes and a pinch of melon and maybe some green apple for a snappy disposition. Dainty though. A wonderful zing as it greets your tongue. Just wants to say hello. Stays alive on the palate for a fortnight which is quite the contradiction based on the delicate start. […]

Copain 2013 Estate P2 Blend What a cool blend. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Just sounds fun. Definitely not something you see everyday. Black cherry and hints of leather. Soft tannins and acids just recline in your mouth like its a lazy Sunday.  It’s gentle and mellow.  Finish is wet and slightly sour.  Nice. Great […]

Gaetano Di’Aquino 2012 Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio

February 10th, 2014 | No Comments

Gaetano Di’Aquino 2012 Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio Notes of apricot and French Oak are very likable.  Starts on the top of your palate and then drops down low and gets long.  Soft acid structure makes this an easy drinker.  Not very complex but an enduring finish making it feel worth the effort.  Although not very […]

This is another gentle white from Dancing Coyote ,which they do very well.  If you are new to wine, this […]

Long finish on the tongue with touch of yeast. http://www.vrwinery.com (K & S Rating: 4 of 6) – $13.99 Winemaker Notes: Pinot Grigio has been said to possess […]
