This copper-colored Pinot Grigio (a result of brief skin contact) offers subdued aromas suggesting yellow flower, toasted nut and citrus zest. Aged in barriques, the linear, rather lean palate offers oak, coconut, lemon and a note of bitter nut while a saline note wraps up the finish. Not your typical Pinot Grigio for sure.
