Wine of the Week for November 2, 2009

Cavallina Grillo-Pinot Grigio IGT 2008 - $9.95
Style: W3


There are subtle aromas of talc, green gage and just a touch of peach here. Very smooth on the palate, with a firm, slightly tart acidity supporting green apple and plum flavours, and good body and length. A great little wine for the price, although some may find the tartness a bit trying. Try with roast chicken, gnocchi, or smoked salmon. (LCBO 123166)
