Attems Pinot Grigio 2018

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, ItalyTasted first at the property and now a year later, this pinot gris is as good as it gets on this market, and is still full of life. From the famed Fruili DOC, it is grown on three distinct terroirs of sand, clay, and compressed sand. The differences allow the fruit to express itself in unique ways, adding just enough complexity to the mix to make it highly enjoyable on the palate. The acidity is fresh, and the combination of almonds, melons, juicy pear, and honey invite you to finish the bottle. Simply prepared fish is a good bet, but why rush? It is getting better in the bottle.Tasted: 28 October 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.99 private wine shops AB 21.95 select private retailers ON 19.95 LCBO - Vintages QC 18.95 SAQ NB 18.80 NBLiquor Producer: Conti Attems S.r.l.Distributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
