Vintner's select 2007 Pinot Grigio...most PG's are this vapid and without structure...I picked late in the year then blended about 4 to 7 % of a proprietary grape this gave the wine a tropical clean citrus nose and the mouthfeel is wonderful, pale gold color...the alc on this is 12.9% with it being easy drinking be careful...RS 1% $ 18.95
our un oaked...that un oaked...Vintner's select Chardonnay 2005 see no oak and since one of it's parent is the same for Riesling with a nice slow cold ferment you get , pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, and it's all about the tropics ...crisp fruit...RS 1% & 18.95
