2005 Eileen's Edition California Pinot Grigio

2005 Eileen's Edition California Pinot Grigio

This exceptional wine will stand up nicely to richer foods. Its sweet aromas of flowers and honey lead to engaging flavors of pineapple and lime, accented by wet stone and mineral notes.

About Pinot Grigio

In northeast Italy it makes a light, crisp and neutral wine. In Alsace it can be a delicately perfumed, honey-flavored wine, either dry or sweet, and with more color than most whites.

    Nice grapefruit aroma and pineapple taste but doesn't last long on the tongue.

    Fantastic. The nose was a barrage of surprises, incredibly fruity and appealing. Phenominal taste and finish, wonderfully light and tasty
