At times I struggle to find the right balance on this site. My personal interest lead me down the path of more obscure, unique and interesting wines. But I know that many readers come here just wanting to find recommendations on something simple they can pick up at their local shop, wherever that shop is. This is a review for those readers.
One of the more common brands I’ve been pleasantly surprised by over the years is Forest Glen. It’s a brand in the portfolio of bargain-wine-giant Bronco Wine Company and is one that I’ve found to have a good quality-to-price ratio fairly consistently. This pinot grigio is no exception.
Apple, pear and light floral aromas give this wine a vibrant and refreshing nose. The flavors are a medley of stone fruits: pear, peach and apple. The acidity is sufficient — meaning it’s crisp, but a touch more acidity would have been even better. The finish is relatively long and brings a touch of citrus to the stone fruit flavors. Overall, I can’t complain about this wine and for ten bucks it’s a bargain.
