2016 Alois Laegder Pinot Grigio (mini review)

Another one from the Mark Anthony portfolio tasting. Pale in color with a nice peach/stone fruit nose. On the mid palate the wine spot on matches the nose with peach and stone fruits dominating a nice fruit forward wine. It’s spot on what I look for in a grigio. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice food friendly acidity. I would give it an 88 or so. $22 a bottle from Mark Anthony.
