Reviews

“This is a quite luscious Pinot Grigio with well-defined and complex flavours and a great, clean, crisp refreshing texture. There’s a pink tinge to the wine from the grape skins, which are often a brownish-pink colour. It’s not as fruity as many pinot grigios, and the texture makes it an excellent choice for many foods. Try it with chicken, pork and shellfish (like mussels steamed in white wine).” 4 stars out of 5. Rod Phillips, The 500 Best-Value Wines in the LCBO.
