Cavit Pinot Grigio 2013

Pinot Grigio in the middle of winter when the temperatures are in the teens (Fahrenheit) outside?  Well, why not?  Although I’m really not one to stand on convention, I will admit that there was another more personal – and more vain – reason for drinking a light white now.  I have an appointment to have my picture taken by a professional photographer, and I want the brightest smile I can muster.  Ha!

Winemaker:  Cavit
Wine:  Pinot Grigio delle Venezie
Vintage:  2013
Appellation:  Venezie IGT, Italy
Price:  $11.49

Notes:  This Cavit PG was a pale yellow with scents of lemon, grass and pear on the nose.  It was characteristically light-bodied with good acidity and 12% alcohol.  Flavors I found mirrored the bouquet – lemon, grass and pear.  The finish was long and lemony.  I think this is a good sipping white and would go very well with a light white fish.
