Producer Note: "A classic wine for the entire meal, a wonderful accompainment to hams and young cold cuts, eggplant, fish dishes and white meats. The "Grigio" holds the second place in our production. The grapes, balanced and mature, offer a wine with Mediterranean hints of pear, peach and dried flowers. The taste of Pinot Grigio is fat and complex due to notes of melon, baked apple and tropical fruit, with hints of apricot. When young, it is a pleasant wine for its fresh and acid note."
The 2014 Blason Pinot Grigio Isonzo has a delicate ripe nose, full of ripe pear aromatics and hints of dried herbs. On the palate you can see the weight of Pinot Grigio. It has a richer texture than a lot of other varieties and here it is expansive. The finish is clean and lasting. This is a wonderful wine to go with grilled fish and it's also an easy summer aperitivo.
A wonderfully refreshing rosé of Pinot Gris - pale salmon color, pretty aromas of peach and apricot with a hint of lychee; white and yellow fruits on the palate with a healthy dose of saline minerals. Good weight but very refreshing with crisp, tart acidity. A great aperitif or with charcuterie, white meats, Asian foods, fish in sauce. Lovely!
This is the same delicious Underwood wine as the bottle, but in an easy-to-transport pop top can! No, it doesn't affect the taste - it's still packed with lemon, apple, and pear fruit with the same supple texture, acidity, and minerally finish. Perfect for summer sipping, for camping, boating, picnicking, beaching, or rocking out at the Hollywood Bowl! From the winery 's tasting notes: White peach, apple, and lemon."
We started importing the wines of this small family-owned winery in Colli Orientali de Friuli (not far from the Slovenian border) with the 2001 vintage. Back then they were far better known in Italy, where they have continuously garnered accolades from Gambero Rosso, but these days they have quite a following here at K&L, too. Vintage after vintage the wines from the brothers Ermacora (Dario and Luciano) sell out very quickly. And they still adhere to the motto: Do little, in order to do better.
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Beautifully styled, this wine brings a solid blend of citrus, cucumber, tangerine and melon flavors. The length and balance are there for further aging, but the stunningly good flavors encourage near-term drinking. (PG)" (10/2015) Wine Spectator: "Bright and sleek, with pretty pear and peach flavors on a jazzy frame, lingering with refreshing acidity on the finish. (Web-2015) (HS)" K&L Notes: Elk Cove Vineyards is one of the oldest wineries in Oregon and they produce one of the best examples of Pinot Gris from the Pacific Northwest. The Willamette Valley's cool climat... Read More »
One of the best deals going in Pinot Grigio, this wine is from the Grave del Friuli DOC, an area perfectly suited to the varietal. The 2013 is crisp, fruity and fresh, exhibiting that classic subtle bitter hint on the palate that makes it such an ideal match with dishes like spaghetti with clams, or sauteed freshwater trout. It also makes a fine pairing with sushi. Enjoy while young and fresh.
Wine Spectator: "Modest citrus and pineapple flavors have an appealing note of almond skin, with a crisp finish. Drink now. (MW, Web-2016)" K&L Notes: J Vineyards, perhaps best-known for their bubbly, has a special connection with Pinot Gris--especially the small, Cooper vineyard adjacent to the tasting room and winery. But this fresh, multi-appellation blend of Pinot Gris comes from California coastal appellations like Russian River Valley and Monterey, as well as Lodi and Clarksburg.
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Stylish and detailed, this exemplaryeffort showcases a subtle and elegant approach to the grape. Rather than fleshy fruit flavors, it offers focused notes of pear skin, citrus rind and an overriding minerality. It’s drinking quite nicely already, and seems built to continue to evolve through 2020." (1/2016)
Reuilly is an appellation in the eastern part of France's Loire Valley (sometimes referred to as 'poor man's Sancerre') that is starting to get some real attention. Reuilly is blessed to share the same Kimmeridgian clay and limestone terroir with neighboring Sancerre and Chablis to the north, which explains where these wines get their mineral drive and precision. As prices for the more coveted regions creep up, savvy connoisseurs are finding great value the lesser-known, nearby appellations like Reuilly. The region produces unique rosés from Pinot Gris, ...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*EDITORS CHOICE* This wine boasts a lovely, creamy texture and citrusy freshness enhanced by deep concentration. Along with the citrus you'll find apple, pear and melon fruitiness. This is an irresistible summer sipper." (8/2015) Wine Spectator: "Light and sleek, with a polished feel to the pear, lime and sassafras flavors, finishing with delicacy. (Web-2015)"
Wine Enthusiast: "Only very subdued notes of citrus emerge and add a little polish to a rounded, balanced and dry palate. However, a lovely, bundled ray of tangerine zestiness at the core brightens the wine immensely." (12/2015) Wine Spectator: "A lithe Pinot Gris, with zesty acidity enlivening the well-spiced mix of guava, apricot and mandarin orange peel notes. Stony finish. (Web Only—2016)"
90 points Vinous: "Palmina's 2014 Pinot Grigio is crisp and refreshing, with plenty of stone fruit and floral notes. The non-malo style keeps the flavors bright and slightly reductive, while a touch of lees stirring adds texture. From top to bottom, this is a compelling set of new releases from Steve and Chrystal Clifton at Palmina. In addition to the current releases, the Cliftons poured two 2005 Nebbiolos, both of which were impressive. Although all of these wines are delicious, if there is one wine that delivers an especially compelling mix of quality, personality and v ...Read More »

Two-thirds of wine production in Alto Adige is controlled by cooperatives, and Erste e Neue is an old cooperative dating back to the year 1900 in the Caldara area. Hundreds of growers' grapes find their way to Erste e Neue to produce quality wines from their sub-alpine terroir near the Mediterranean's Adriatic Sea. From Erste e Neue: "The Pinot Grigio is graced with lovely purity in its clean, focused fruit. There is a wonderful warmth that radiates through the wine even if this remains a fresh, mineral-driven style of Pinot Grigio."

Wine Enthusiast: "Fresh flavors of herb, gooseberry, lime and pear comingle. This is the first release of a new sister brand to Elk Cove. All Willamette Valley fruit, including some estate grown grapes, it's done in a clean and refreshing style. This is a perfect mid-week, food friendly white wine. (PG)" (8/2016)
90 points Wine & Spirits: "A generous white with crisp apple scents and flavors touching on lemon curd, this is simple, racy and mouthwatering with a tangy acidity that would make it an ideal pairing with shrimp spring rolls." (8/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This is solidly varietal, with a sleek mix of pear flesh and skin. Some tension created between the phenolic bite and tart acidity carries through into the finish. It suggests that a proper match, with a relatively oily fish perhaps, will bring out its best." (8/2015)
Palmina was founded in 1995 by Steve Clifton, one of the founding partners of noteworthy Pinot Noir producer Brewer-Clifton. Palmina focuses entirely on Italian varietals sourced from their Central Coast stomping grounds in and around Santa Barbara County, and few labels have done more to promote and develop the potential of these Italian varietals in this era of California winemaking. The 2015 Pinot Grigio is sourced entirely from the Honea vineyard in the newly established Los Olivos District AVA in Santa Ynez Valley. From the winery: "There is a brill... Read More »
Vinous: "Vivid, green-tinged yellow. Scents of citrus peel and grilled nuts combine with ripe pear and baked apple on the enticing nose. Firmly built and suave, with ripe acidity and good underlying minerality framing the sweet citrus and spice flavors. Finishes meaty and long, with herbal and earthy nuances to the ripe orchard fruit flavors. The Pfister estate has long been associated with very dry Pinot Gris. Melanie Pfister explained to me that this is because her grandfather Alfred didn’t like red wines and needed a fuller-bodied but dry white wine to go with ...Read More »
The 2014 Pinot Grigio melds aromas and flavors of pear, citrus, white floral, and a bit of spice. The texture is silky, ending with a chalky yet clean minerality. A pleasure!
Wine Enthusiast: "This is labeled as dry, which sums up this crisp and fruity wine. Delicious, refreshing acidity is gently spiced and layered with green apples and quince flavors." (4/2015) K&L Notes: According to the winery: "Domaine Rieflé’s terroirs are located throughout the communes of Pfaffenheim, Rouffach, Westhalten and Soultzmatt on the fracture zones of the Marbach and Ohmbach faults. They form a mosaic of highly fragmented geological compartments. Our AOC Alsace vineyards are mainly situated on sedimentary soils of varying depths. Our Pinot Blanc parcels all lie on the oft...

The Goriska Brda Hills for a hilly landscape in western Slovenia, north of Nova Gorica on the Italian border. The region has a mild sub-Mediterranean climate with plentiful sunshine. This is the ideal location for grape growing, according to Katja Kabaj Morel and her French oenologist husband, Jean-Michel Morel. Their Pinot Grigio is crystal clear in color with a fruity aroma reminiscent of green apples and flowers. The fruitiness reappears in the mouth, along with minerality closing in on a long finish. Great with rich pasta dishes as well as most cooke... Read More »
Raidis Estate is a boutique property in Coonawarra, South Australia. The small acreage of estate vines, planted 26 years ago, is looked after by two generations of the Raidis family. The wines are very small production and faithfully reflect this cool climate, heavily limestone influenced region. The Pinot Gris rosé is very interesting. Extended skin contact draws just the faintest blush pink from the luminous skins of this intriguing varietal. While the color of this rosé is very subtle its aromas and flavors are not. The wine soars with bright floral n... Read More »
From the producer: "When we talk about our favorite autumn wines, Pinot Gris always seems to be a big part of the conversation. The grapes for this wine were picked last year in late August from Laetitia Vineyards; its quality promised a vintage of depth and sophistication. We barrel-fermented the juice in 100% neutral French oak, giving the 2014 Pinot Gris its rich & creamy texture and crisp and dry finish. This wine delivers expressive aromas of jasmine, nectarine, and resin followed by flavors of melon, lemon, and hints of white peach. The weight and ... Read More »

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Gold with copper highlights, this elegantly structured wine offers heady scents of white spring flower and orchard fruit. On the juicy, savory palate, nutmeg and mineral notes back up ripe apple, mature pear and apricot that lead to a fresh finish. (KO)" (7/2016)
Wine Enthusiast: "The longtime Alsatian-focused producer-circa 1983-delivers a wine with aromas of lemon peel, pear juice, lime zest and yellow cake. The palate shows orange blossom sorbet and a lemon zest that lingers from sip to finish." (2/2015)
90 points Wine Spectator: "Lightly honeyed, backed by enough juicy acidity for balance, with a waft of petrol accenting the flavors of melon, orange granita and candied almond, followed by a stony finish. Drink now through 2020." (4/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "This cool wine features considerable freshness cutting the fragrant fruits. The single-vineyard site of Hohrain is next door to Pfersigberg Grand Cru. The wine is still young and showing textured mineral character. It needs several years to bring out its depth of flavor. Drink from 2017." (4/2015)
94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Planted in 1965, these are the oldest examples of this variety in the entire country. Splendid texture is a defining characteristic, with a yeasty, creamy mouthfeel. Ripe apples and toasted grains come through, as the wine extends through a long and powerful finish. Try it with grilled shrimp and a wine and butter sauce." (1/2016)
97 points Wine Spectator: "A seductive mouthful of smoke, apricot, orange marmalade and honey ride a bright structure and smooth texture in this seamless SGN. Concentrated, yet seemingly lighter than air, the finish goes on and on. Drink now through 2025. (BS)" (10/2005)

Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Gris is bright, crisp and refreshing. White flowers, pears, apples and almonds are all laced together nicely in the glass. This pretty, aromatic white is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years." (10/2014)
