Kris Pinot Grigio 2019
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Delle Venezie|
The Kris 2019 Pinot Grigio (packaged in its usual screw cap bottle) shows a textbook interpretation of this versatile grape. The bouquet reveals pretty tones of citrus, honeydew melon, apple, crushed stone and freshly cut grass. Throughout it all, the wine shows a heightened level of sharpness and focus that can only come from the cooler climates of Northern Italy. This easy wine would pair with a classic insalata di mare served by the beach or the pool.
The rather shy nose evokes spring wildflower and white stone fruit. On the crisp palate, vibrant acidity accompanies suggestions of green apple and pear before a citrusy close.
The 2019 Pinot Grigio is spicy and fresh with a bouquet of yellow florals, dried ginger and pear. Its soft textures balance ripeness of fruit with subtle minerality to create a pleasant and round expression. Hints of ripe apple and lime linger through the finale.
