Half the wine is fermented in oak (the rest in steel) and half receives malolactic fermentation. Now this wine was no surprise and was right up my palate alley. Look for rich flavors like apricot, pineapple and butterscotch in addition to some tropical and citrus flavors.

Not usually a fan of “Housewife Crack” Pinot Grigio but this is an exception. Very rich & creamy without a tarty bite. Wonderful fruit and lush balance. Maybe the best CA Pinot Grigio.
