The first vines from this variety arrived in 1832 so it has been around a while but it is only recently, the last 10 years, has it really taken off. Generally these wines are released very young but wineries are experimenting with lees contact and barrel aging so expect some wild new wines to emerge.
Pizzini Pinot Grigio 2013
The Pizzini effort is built for summer drinking and loving and it still possess plenty of flavour in the form of pear skin, lemon rind and spice. The light weight palate works perfectly in the middle of the day with a nice light meal yet it still has a richer mid palate with a hint of creaminess coming through which takes it up the interest ladder. This wine is a very good effort for a wine under 20 bucks.
