Pale in color with a crisp nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some odd out of place flavors, I would say nectarine that the LCBO description referred to. There’s a slight hint of pear. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice crisp firm acidity and nice dryness. I would give it an -88. Not exactly what I look for in a pinot grigio.
From the LCBO web site:
Invivo Pinot Gris 2016 — VINTAGES#: 367771
STYLE – Aromatic & Flavourful
It is beautifully fruited and lifted on the nose displaying nectarine, poached pear and mandarin characters. The palate is succulent and rounded with a hint of sweetness, perfectly balanced by juicy acidity, finishing long and tasty. Wonderfully expressive and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2019. Score – 91. (Sam Kim, wineorbit.co.nz, July 2016) $16.95
