You get a lot of pinot grigio for your money with this wine which has more flavour than most of its Italian cousins...

Pear, peaches, and nuts on the nose. It is medum-bodied, creamy, with crisp acidity and plenty of fruit. Great value.

Wow. Maybe I just don't get what Grigio's are supposed to taste like, but I had to put water in this just to be able to choke it down. The alcohol is not balanced by the flavour, making it reminiscent of mouthwash or paint thinner. I far prefer the similarly-priced Pinot Grigio's from Argentina. 75 (Average) is the lowest rating available, but I'd put it at about 45. Tasted the 2012 vintage, November 2013.
