Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio Valdadige 2010

Bear in mind I am still learning so take what I say about wines with a pinch of salt. This is the second wine I got off Damian out in La Touche Wines last weekend.  He recommended this Pinot Grigio from Trentino, Italy.  Generally I am not a fan of Pinot Grigio as I find it generally watery or bland, something Joanne would drink while out to dinner ( Joanne doesn't generally like wines and always sees something like this as a safe option). Anyhow I decided on Monday night to open up the bottle, yes a Monday, and yes it was needed after work.

I am happy to report yet again Damian shows how well he knows his stuff, this wine is beautiful. It was so crisp and dry ( not like the cooking oil haha ) and tasted like tart apples with a background sweetness. The wine has a golden yet slightly pink hue to it and to my mind doesn't resemble regular Pinot Grigios. If you do want to pair this with food I think it would go really well with risotto or a chicken based dish, although it would be lovely with some fruit. I was so happy that this wine turned out to be as good as it is. I only drank one large glass so will have another snifter the next night :)

Thanks for reading
