Pinot Grigio '02

Pinot Grigio '02 Wine Details
Price: $9.00 per bottle

Description: Sold Out. A very nice Pinot Grigio. A very young and fruity wine. The wine has a very straight forward nose of 2 hour cut hay. The body is dry and flavorful. This wine is not like other Pinot Grigio's. It does not have the typical "Floral Perfume" nose of most Pinot Grigios. it is more like a full bodied Chardonnay without the hot flash on your tongue. "To me it is the dance of sweet and dry" Everyone has loved this wine.

Varietal Definition
Chardonnay is by far the most widely planted grape crop in California and dominates California’s cooler, coastal, quality wine regions. The natural varietal ‘taste and smell’ of Chardonnay is surprisingly unfamiliar to many wine drinkers, as its true character is often guised with dominating winemaking signatures. Chardonnay’s rather subdued primary fruit characteristics lean toward the crisp fruitiness of apples, pears and lemon, but the variety’s full body is capable of supporting a host of complementary characteristics, such as oak, butter and vanilla. Regardless of what is the appropriate style for Chardonnay, the varietal continues to dominate vineyard plantings in every corner of the world. Close attention to clonal selection has made this broad geographic and climactic range of Chardonnay viable in thoughtful viticultural hands.
Pinot Grigio/Gris:
Pinkish-white variety producing a very crisp white wine. Grown in Oregon, the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, and more and more in California, it shows promise for other cool climates. Also known as Tokay d'Alsace in France, Rulander in Germany, and Pinot Grigio in Italy.
