Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomite 2012 375 Ml Product #27422 (In Stock)
Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomite 2012 375 Ml Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomite 2012 375 Ml

As always, this is a classic Pinot Grigio from the foothills of Italy's Dolomite mountains.  Rich aromas of peach and pear with an herbal accent.  In the mouth, broad, rich, and packed with orchard fruits and a dash of citrus that turns juicy on the clean, fresh, finish.  A richer style of Pinot Grigio that's as fun to sip solo as it is to pare with rich fish or cheese.

What a roll these guys are on!  The past two vintages of this gutsy Pinot Grigio earned 90 points from Wine Enthusiast, bragging rights as the best <$20 Grigio we know of, and our Chain Bridge Cellars Selection sticker.  The 2012?  Better than ever!

Once again, it's a Pinot Grigio for folks who like actual flavor in their crisp, refreshing, whites.  As in the past, lovely aromas and flavors of ripe pear, crisp apple, peach, and tangerine here with an extra layer of complexity from notes of melon, blanched almond, and a lovely floral element.  A tad richer and fuller than in the past, but just as mouthwatering and salty-mineral on the juicy, fresh, finish.  Just lovely, great value, stuff.

Hillinger Pinot Gris 2012 Product #27590 (In Stock)
Hillinger Pinot Gris 2012 Hillinger Pinot Gris 2012

Our first thought when tasting this Pinot Gris was “wow!”  This intensely flavored white from Austria’s Burgenland, an area mostly known for reds, is no wussy, bland Pinot Grigio.  It’s hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks with a bit more skin contact than is usual for a white wine.  This allows the wine to pick up more color and flavor from the grapes’ grayish-pink skins.  The aromas are enormously appealing and perfect for fall – pear, nutmeg, ripe, golden apple, and a little hint of ginger.

About 5% of the wine is fermented in used barriques, rounding out the wine’s edges, and giving that sophisticated hint of spice to its flavor profile.  On the palate, those delicious spicy pear flavors carry through.  This wine packs a ton of richness and flavor into a very reasonable 12.5% ABV.  It finishes snappy and fresh, and that little bit of ginger kicks right back in.  This is the perfect cocktail party white to get everyone’s mouth watering, but its intensity and weight allows it to stand up to pretty robust food.

Ransom Pinot Gris Eola Amity 2012 Product #27740 (In Stock)
Ransom Pinot Gris Eola Amity 2012 Ransom Pinot Gris Eola Amity 2012

Very little made (just 232 cases) of this organically grown, naturally made, Piont Gris from Cattrall and Temperance Hill vineyards.  A rich, deeply-textured, take on Oregon Pinot Gris that shows the complexity of whole cluster pressing, two months on the lees, and just the right hint of residual sugar. Aromas and flavors of heirloom apples, tart pear, mountain flowers and brioche bread.  Creamy and rich on the palate but then juicy and refreshing on the mouthwatering finish where lemon custard and browned pear notes linger.

"Ample and subtly creamy, this still offers more than enough refreshing primary juiciness and an abundance of ripe peach as if close to the core: subtly piquant and salty in a manner that really stimulates the salivary glands. A garland of bittersweet floral perfume and additionally invigorating twist of lime peel add to the appeal of this outstanding value that should prove highly versatile until at least 2015."Wine Advocate 89 points

Nals Margreid Pinot Grigio Punggl 2012 Product #27280 (In Stock)
Nals Margreid Pinot Grigio Punggl 2012 Nals Margreid Pinot Grigio Punggl 2012

A fine Alto Aidge Pinot Grigio that shows off the extra richness of the 2012 vintage without any loss of freshness or zing.  Lively, bright, aromas and flavors of stone fruits (peach, apricot, etc.) plus a touch of melon and just a hint of exotic spice.  Full, almost oily, in the mid-palate before crisp apple and lemon acids deliver a crisp, minerally, finish.  Worth paying attention to.

Elena Walch Pinot Grigio Castel Ringberg 2012 Product #27395 (In Stock)
Elena Walch Pinot Grigio Castel Ringberg 2012 Elena Walch Pinot Grigio Castel Ringberg 2012

Elena Walch remains one of the very top winemakers in Alto Adige and her estate Pinot Grigio is a great example of her work. Mostly made in tank, but 15% is fermented and aged in wood for more heft and depth.  Ripe peach, crunch apple, honeysuckle, anise, and fresh almond aromas and flavors take the lead with a very slight, subtle, note of honey lingering under the zippy acids.  Lip-smacking, complex, and very delicious Pinot Grigio!

Lumos Pinot Gris Rudolfo Vyd Oregon 2012 Product #28196 (In Stock)
Lumos Pinot Gris Rudolfo Vyd Oregon 2012 Lumos Pinot Gris Rudolfo Vyd Oregon 2012

An excellent value her in top-quality, single-vineyard, Oregon Pinot Gris from certified organic grapes.  Rich, but not heavy or sweet, with luscious ripe pear, warm spice, and a mouthwatering tangerine acidity.  Pear skin, orange blossom, and spice notes linger on the fresh, long, finish. 

"Dai Crisp has drawn from this well-established vineyard just south of the Eola Hills since 2001, and his latest release has an ease to its leesy marzipan scents and broad contours. It has a generous air, before the grape-skin grip draws the wine toward a harmonious finish."Wine & Spirits 92 points

Sineann Pinot Gris Oregon 2012 Product #27150 (In Stock)
Sineann Pinot Gris Oregon 2012 Sineann Pinot Gris Oregon 2012

From Oregon specialist Peter Rosback, this Pinot Gris from just across the river in the Columbia Gorge is one of the best we've had in years.  Richly textured like Alsace Pinot Gris but with Italian Pinot Grigo acidity and oodles of ripe pear, citrus peal, kiwi, and dusty mineral aromas and flavors lifted by zingy lemon and grapefruit acids.  Intense but not heavy, great with Asian or spicy foods.

Kientzler Tokay Pinot Gris Kirchberg Grand Cru 2002 Product #27983 (In Stock)
Kientzler Tokay Pinot Gris Kirchberg Grand Cru 2002 Kientzler Tokay Pinot Gris Kirchberg Grand Cru 2002

Yes, it's really 11 years old, having matured perfectly in importer Olivier Daubresse's warehouse.  All Pinot Gris from the grand cru Kirchberg vineyard, this opens with wildly complex aromas of peach, apricot, baked pear and more.  Fantastic attack on the palate with dried fruit and smoky slate flavors and zingy acids under the tiny amount of residual sugar.  Long, layered, and complex, it's rich enough for big foods but finishes dry and mouthwatering for wonderful refreshment.
