2016 Lumina Ruffino Pinot Grigio

Pale in color with a mild citrus nose. On the mid palate especially without food there’s some mild stone fruits, (think peach), but the dominant flavour here is definitely citrus, lemon and the like. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice crisp dryness and vibrant acidity. This is a super food friendly wine and would make a perfect on the patio summer sipper. I would give it an 88 or so which given the price is a bargain. A nice smooth subtle wine.
