Our Pinot Grigio expresses abundant citrus and lemon-lime aromas with layers of fresh stone fruit, sprinkled with intense floral and lavender notes. Bright and racy acidity is beautifully balanced with fresh citrus, leading to a crisp, refreshing finish.
Considered by most in the winemaking community as the most difficult of white wines to make well, Pinot Grigio grapes are a challenge to handle as well. With such close ties to its sibling Pinot Noir, Grigio defines what a white wine should be. This is where the challenges come into play. The Pinot Grigio grapes actually contain anthocyanins (chemistry geeks' term for color pigments), which make it very difficult to pull off the appearance of "white wine." Careful handling and meticulous artisanal handling from our winemaking team makes this phenomenon achievable - and very drinkable.
A number of foods would be great with this wine. Try it with a bowl full of steamed mussels in a broth made with Rex Goliath Pinot Grigio, garlic, onions, and butter. Or for a hot summer afternoon, fresh fish tacos are an amazing partner!
