Pinot Grigio, Santa Barbara County,

Pinot Grigio, Santa Barbara County, Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: The first impression of the wine is of heady aromatics that are floral, with distinct notes of white flower, apricot blossoms and lilies, with hints of fresh bread and lycees. A first taste wakes up the palate with other exotic flavors of asian pear and kumquats.The wine has a bracing and lively fruit-acid balance, with nuances of minerality, a subtle reminder of fruit-pie meringue and a long, lingering and pleasant lemon-lime finish. Weightier than most Pinot Grigio wines, this is more than just something to drink until the red is open

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.
