As you might already have garnered, I [and many other people that I know in the wine industry] consider Pinot Grigio to be like water, pretty much light and flavorless. This, of course, is not to say that there aren't some wonderful ones out there, as I have discovered.

This wine reminds me a little bit of a Verdejo in the smallest bit of tart citrus (lemon) that I get on the tongue as soon as I take a sip. It actually reminds me of water with lemon on it, but automatically also feel a silk on your tongue that is unique to wine. This wine is perfect for a picnic, or with anything from fresh fruit, salads or grilled chicken at a cookout. It also goes great with a nice book while sitting outside, whether in the middle, or the end of the day.

You'll notice that I rarely write reviews about 1.5L bottles, but this actually wasn't something bad, and the price is decent for all budgets.
