Kris Pinot Grigio 2021
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Delle Venezie|
Crushed stone gives way to ripe peaches with a spritz of lime as the 2020 Pinot Grigio opens in the glass. This is silky and pliant in feel, with a balanced inner sweetness matched by bright acidity. Notes of honeyed pears and a hint of candied citrus can be found throughout, as this finishes with admirable freshness.
The Kris 2020 Pinot Grigio (in an easy screw-cap bottle) is an informal wine to pair with a summer salad lunch. The wine opens to a light golden color, followed by mild aromas of citrus, cut grass and white peach. You get that slightly salty or mineral touch as well, which is always a signature of white wines made in northern Italy. This is a great value with an ambitious 3.5 million bottles made.
Aromas of chamomile, hazelnut and a hint of honey greet the nose. The aromas carry on to light, rounded palate along with ripe apricot before a bitter almond close.
