Pinot Grigio 2015
The 2015 Pinot Grigio is sourced entirely from Honea vineyard in the newly established Los Olivos District AVA. This is the perfect picnic wine with a low 12.5% alcohol
There is a brilliance shining through the pale straw color of the wine. A swirl produces bright aromas of yellow stone fruit, Asian pear, and green guava. A first taste wakes up the palate with flavors of grapefruit and keylime pie. The wine has a bracing and lively fruit-acid balance, with nuances of minerality, and a long, lingering and pleasant lemon curd finish. Best when served at cellar temperature, and enjoyed in its youth.
Food Pairing Notes
The dry acidity of the wine makes it a classic food wine. Creamy pasta dishes such as risotto and rich seafood recipes will be a great companion to this wine. However, it is also a beautiful “patio wine” during the warm days of summer and will pair well with cured meats like salami, crab cakes, and grilled fish.
