Pale straw in color with a mild minerally nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some mild peach and stone fruits. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice green apple tart notes along with some nice vibrant acidity. This is actually not a bad Pinot Grigio (said as someone who doesn’t find most Pinot Grigios complex or long enough). The tart notes coat the palate and live on nicely in the mouth, nice and dry! I would give this an 88 or so. We paired it with a bacon and mushroom quiche and it held it’s own, and was maybe even a little over powering for the meal. Who knew. It’s also not as sensitive to temperature as some whites, even straight out of the fridge there’s some nice complexity. From the LCBO web site Check stock:
Oyster Bay Pinot Grigio
Oyster Bay has long been a flag-bearer for New Zealand premium wine. Their PG is zesty and juicy with generous peach, lime, grapefruit and minerality, and falls between the Alsatian and Italian styles. Enjoy with grilled pork.
