I haven’t been back to Prince Edward County (PEC) in a while, but every year DrinkInc holds a County in the City event where you get to try a host of wines from PEC. It’s always a nice treat. This wine is from PEC, in case you thought the earlier comments were miscellaneous ramblings :). This wine is golden in color with a nice nose of peach. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some nice stone fruits, think peach and the link. It’s slightly sweet but not too much. On the lighter finish the wine’s sugar does not linger at all. This is definitely a fruit forward pinot grigio. Perfect as a summer sipper or a great wine for people just starting to explore wine. I would give it an 87-88, not bad at all.
