Careful Pinot Grigio vinification produces a bright straw yellow wine with coppery highlights resulting from its skin-wine contact. On the nose it is generous, with floral notes and delicate citrusy nuances. Pinot Grigio is one of the world’s most commonly grown grape varieties and owes its fame above all to its ability to make elegant, easy drinking wines.. - Winery Notes
This wine contains the delicious siren song of the Mediterranean in summer. It’s all linen shirts and boat shoes without a pair of socks in sight. Jasmine flowers at dusk, lemon groves and, like a St Tropez beach, the odd pear. Also, much like the sockless denizens of the sea, it is rich, full of itself and with a briny tongue. Unlike them, it is gratifyingly affordable. And organic. – Grizzly Dickens, Carboot Wine Buyer
