It is always fun to drink a wine from the southern hemisphere in the current vintage, when the grapes in Europe and the northern hemisphere haven't even been harvested yet. And I have to say this is a little cracker. 100% Pinot Grigio from vineyards at over 2,000 feet elevation in Mendoza, it is intensely aromatic, with grape skins, ripe peach and nectarine and a floral edge. On the palate it is juicy and very tangy, with a real bite of pear skin acidity and crispness, and an underlying fruitiness that hints at pineapple and tropicality. This wine is dry, with lemon and grapefruit acidity, and balances a rich, quite chewy texture with a bright, sprightly character. Delightful stuff.
