Bottle #2: Crisp, Refreshing and Ready For Spring
It’s time to review my second bottle from my Club W box, the PG-13 Pinot Grigio! Ever since I started drinking wine, I mostly gravitated to earthy robust red wines. In the last couple of years, since California seems to skip winter, a nice cold refreshing glass of white wine is exactly what the weather calls for.
Wine Maker’s Notes
PG-13 epitomizes the Venetian style and is the perfect wine to try if you typically reach for a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc. You’ll love its clean citrus flavors, fresh mineral notes, and added texture that makes PG-13 stand out.
Varietal: Pinot Grigio
Location: Veneto, Italy
PG-13 Pinot Grigio is pretty refreshing wine, but has a bit of an overpowering mineral aftertaste. It’s definitely dry and crisp, with a bit of a fruity green apple tones. Not too heavy on the palate, but has this juicy mouthfeel and tartness. The PG-13 name felt fitting as it seemed slightly immature. but definitely has loads of potential. A decent wine option to enjoy on a spring day.
When To Drink:
It’s light and fruity enough to serve as a white wine option for a small outdoor dinner, but if you have Chardonnay drinkers this one might not be a hit, it’s a bit too fruit forward.
This is definitely a spring wine served with a arugula salad with spicy candied pecans, cranberries, avocado, beets, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. Grill up chicken or trout on the barbecue with a tangy sauce to compliment the tarty sweetness and mineral notes in the PG-13 Pinot Grigio.
