It’s been a while since we’ve reviewed a pinot grigio, so we need no more reason than that to check one out today.
This one comes from Voga Italia and they win the award for coolest, sexiest bottle I’ve seen all week. When I first saw this bottle I thought it would just be a screw cap, but there’s actually a synthetic cork underneath the cap. So, fair warning, don’t take this one on a camping trip without a corkscrew or you may find yourself beating the bottom of the bottle inside a boot to remove the cork. Anyway, once you get the cork out, you can reseal the bottle with the screw cap.
But ultimately, it’s what’s in the bottle that really matters. And I have no complaints about what’s in this bottle.
This wine has some really nice pear and floral aromatics, with moderate intensity. The flavors are mostly pear and apple, but it also offers some lime and subtle peach notes. The acidity is sufficient, but not dramatic. The finish is nice and long. Overall, it’s a pretty nice wine. And it will look stylish sitting on your shelf before you drink it.
My wife liked this one too and said it paired well with peanut butter. That’s not a pairing I would have picked, but I could see it working.
