Another wine club delivery from this last week – I’m having a glass as an aperitif before dinner. It’s a 2016 vintage, which means it’s just recently been bottled.
2 Lads Pinot Grigio (2016) Old Mission Peninsula, Michigan – $17
Color: very brassy and pale.
Aroma: lemon, vanilla, some green grassy and herbal notes.
Taste: crisp, with a touch of residual carbon dioxide that makes it lively on the tongue. The citrus notes are balanced by the herbal notes – like in a good Thai dish – and the overall impression is lively and refreshing. This is a great cocktail hour white.
