2016 Chateau Ste. Michelle Pinot Gris

July 7, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#26-18-PIE

We enjoyed a great Fourth of July with friends, and I hope you did also. One of our good friends really likes Pinot Grigio, so we all sampled a bottle of Ste. Michelle Pinot Gris and asked for her opinion. She liked it and gave it an 89. I might have even bumped it up to a 90.

The wine has a good fresh bouquet which smacks of pear and melon, with a spicy aroma in the background. The flavors are assertive spicy pear, with under currents of peach and melon. The finish is clean and crisp with just a touch of tangy spice toward the end. The alcohol content is 13.5%, and the "Pinot Grigio Lady's" score is 89.

We enjoyed the 2016 Pinot Gris with an array of appetizers before dinner, but this one is definitely a candidate for a summer time "Back Porch Sipper". It would also pair well with your choice of chilled summer salads!

price : $9 - $12

score: 89
