Jacob’s Creek Pinot Grigio 2012

There are so many white wine options to choose from that my adventures with a Pinot Grigio in the glass have been fewer than say with a Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.  I don’t have anything against the varietal, though, so I picked up this Australian PG to try on a warm summer evening.

2012Winemaker:  Jacob’s Creek
Varietal:  Pinot Grigio
Vintage:  2012
Appellation:  South Eastern Australia
Price:  $5.99

Notes:   The bouquet was interesting to me because not only was there citrus and lots of floral scent, it also seemed like it had some of the pollen, too.  The color of this inexpensive Jacob’s Creek PG was a very light straw.  It was a light-bodied wine with good acidity.  The label put the alcohol at 11.3%  Flavors for me were plenty of grass and citrus, mineral notes throughout, some citrus zest, and a light sweetness across the palate.  It was pleasant enough to sip and would make a fairly decent accompaniment with a light, white fish – no heavy spices or sauces, though.
