WE 2009 86 Citrus & pear flavors have a nice snap, showing refreshing acidity. Notes of fresh thyme & green apple mark the finish.
WE 2011 86 Marked by brisk, citrusy acidity, this Pinot Grigio has orange, Meyer lemon & sweet green-grass flavors. Pairs w/ Chinese and Vietnamese food.
Winemaker Notes Bright, fresh pear & peach fruit mingle w/ lychee & Meyer lemon aromas in the complex nose of this wine. On the palate, these aromas are translated directly into the generous flavor profile. Nice weight in mouth due to synergy of Oakville Estate components: Pinot Grigio & Chardonnay. Pairs w/light pasta dishes & almost any seafood. Serve chilled.
