Wine of the Week for April 10, 2006

Argento Pinot Grigio 2005 - $10.15
Style: W2

The “grey pinot” has been enjoying centre stage lately, and it may very well be because of bargains like this. The full straw colour shows the merest hint of copper. Forward aromas include spice and melon, with nuances of stone fruits and floral. The crisp acidity leads to understated citrus, melon, more spice on the palate. Quite good body and length, with a pleasant bitterness on the close. A great way to usher in warmer weather. Try with flavourful fish, schnitzel or BBQ poultry. (LCBO 620492)

I found that this wine lacked fruit: it was definitely in the Italian acid style. Why do people persist in drinking Pinot Gris/Grigio from anywhere?
