To me, pinot grigio is one of the lightest wines that you can drink; it's like the Coors Light of wine. But this wine is perfect for those that like white wines, this might be something that's perfect.

The bottle itself says that the wine features alluring aromas of melon, kiwi and golden apple. I, however, could detect none of those, or shall I say that if they are there, then they are very slight in strength. Moreso than anything, it does have a silky feel, but as far as flavor, again, it is something that lakes strength, which is how most pinot grigios [that I have had] are.

Again, I would recommend this wine for people that like light wines, or that like Pinot Grigio, but for those that are really into wines, I'd leave this alone.
