Catches the easygoing freshness and subtlety of Italian pinot grigio, then bumps up the flavours a notch. Fresh peach, white bread crust and grapefruit combine nicely. Mid-weight, fleshy and juicy, if a touch bitter on the finish. A good aperitif sipper with such mild white cheeses as gouda and Swiss.

I'm not a big fan of Pinot Grigio but this Creekside Estate version offers bountiful Niagara fruit aromas and flavours. My novice schnoz picks up apple, peach, lemon and lime. The fruit carries on nicely to the palate. Ok length with some minerality wrapped up by tart, slightly bitter acidity. Quite versatile as a sipper and with a variety of food. Picked it up on sale at LCBO making it a good value for my bottom feeder budget. Grip it and sip it!
