Description & Tasting Notes

Why this wine?

This lovely Pinot Grigio is a crisp, mineral-rich white wine offering a refreshing and intense fruit sensation. Wildflowers and rose water merge seamlessly on the nose with bright aromas of white peach, pear, and spring flowers. On the palate, zesty flavors of ripe apple and pear lead, followed by layered nuances of peach, apricot, and pear.
