Light straw tinged with green, this wine's up front lemon, grapefruit, and pear notes give way to floral aromas, and the crisp, zesty acidity makes it dance on the palate. Medium -bodied wine, it marries lush drinkability with smooth refinement.
Master Vintner Pinot Grigio makes 6 gallons of crisp dry white wine scented with citrus and a clean finish that lingers on minerals, white fruits and almonds.
Pair with white fish and light seafood dishes, like sole in buerre blanc or grilled halibut, broiled oysters, or for a zesty treat, ceviche. Pinot Grigio also works with sliced pears and soft cheese (or white stilton!)--or even with calamari on a sunny patio.
Serve cool (52-55F) rather than ice cold, to bring out the citrus and pear aromas, and try it with a splash of soda and a lime wedge for a brilliant spritzer at your next party.
