Tasting Notes And Wine Reviews

Elena Walch - 16/06/2014

Pinot Grigio 2013 (screwcap)
Nice clean fresh pure varietal character. Very clean bright inoffensive fresh style. A little too easy.

Pinot Bianco 2013
A bit squeakier on the nose, a little sweeter and broader in the fruit structure, rolls a bit more on the palate. 200 more words

2013 Sylvaner
Slightly more dense fruit, less floral, approaching green apricots. Crisp light fresh and precise, friendly acids, nice fruit balance. Good enough for the price. 87 more words
