The most striking things about this wine are the colour (a very pale orange) and a smooth, velvety texture (perhaps due to very ripe grapes and a tiny hint of residual sugar - unexpected but welcome).
This is a lot closer to an Alsace Pinot Gris than an Italian Pinot Grigio (quick reminder - they're the same grape variety), and luckily for me because I much prefer the former. Flavours of pale summer fruit and some floral notes as well in there. Really, really good. This would be great on its own, or with a salad maybe, even a fruit one.
