Attems Pinot Grigio 2018

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, ItalyScared of Italian pinot grigio? Give this a whirl. From Friuli's low laying Gorizia hills and their marls, sandstone and clay, and near 20 year old grigio vines, this was fermented in steel and 10% barriques, prior to a four month rest in the vessels on lees. The lees is very much felt here on the round, plumped palate, cushioning pear, honeysuckle, white peach, and yellow plum on the 12.5 degree palate. There's a delicate fine spicing on the finish. Lovely ease and freshness to this substantial wine; would be ideal with fresh halibut or sablefish.Tasted: 31 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
