Ripe and thick: an unbelievable bouquet from a *light* white screw-top. Solid legal-pad in the glass, beautiful creamy tropical fruit perched on a solid platform of acid and rigidity. Crisp while powerful, shocking citrus points pound the nose.
Equally sharp and invigorating on the palate, and SO packed with flavor. This is not your mother’s Pinot Grigio, packing Chablis-like depth and concentration into a bottle often confused. Gorgeous apricot and plum, a kiwi taint of juxtapositional energy, hints of mown grass and fresh hay along an icy path of brilliant bitter. It feels tannic and is just plain outstanding. 15 bucks and completely organic: glass this all day long. To everyone!
