Tired of Pinot Grigio? This is what it tasted like before the mass market got its mitts on the Italian version of it.

This Pinot Gris has a bright pale straw colour with fresh subtle citrus aroma with a peaches and cream edge to it. There’s a surprising weight and buttery complexity to this wine, cut through with a sherbet lemon acidity that lingers before leaving a juicy clean finish. This wine is an exercise in balance and at 12.5% vol. alcohol, it’s dangerously easy drinking, while still rewarding those willing to take the time to focus on it’s more subtle complexities… This and the ‘Pinot Blanc’ by the same producer are top picks for summer drinking this year… £9.99 from the Oxford Wine Company.
