Many people have no idea about the amount of Italians in South American (and no, they weren't part of the Gestapo), and weirdly enough, I believe that this is my first Pinot Grigio from Argentina.

This wine is light and delicate, straw-colored, floral scented, with a demure taste of pineapple and honeysuckle. If you take your time to savor it thoroughly, you do find a wonderful amount of citrus and acidity riding on top of a nice heavier than medium body feel. The finish is sharp at first, and then subsides to a slowly decreasing crescendo which takes about fifteen seconds.

While this is not my style of Pinot Grigio, this actually is a grand slam.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
