Terlato Vineyards Friuli Pinot Grigio 2015
|Appellation||Colli Orientali del Friuli|
The Tasting PanelNo doubt this prestigious region in northeast Italy shines when it comes to white wines; an envious position on the world wine stage. This pretty, crisp white certainly shows ripeness in its concentrated notes of pear, peach and grapefruit but its stoney frame is a nod to the iconic mineral rich sloped terraced vineyards responsible for its pizazz and charm. The finish is clean, punctuated with an apricot accent.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of green apple and white peach lead the nose on this refreshing white while the medium-bodied palate offers ripe pear and juicy nectarine zest. Bright acidity gives it focus and a clean finish.
Wine SpectatorMinerally and clean-cut, this zesty white offers hints of crunchy peach, spring forest and Honeycrisp apple, framed by juicy acidity. Drink now through 2019. 40,000 cases made.
