Terlato Vineyards Pinot Grigio 2017
|Region||Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Colli Orientali del Friuli|
This opens with enticing scents of honeysuckle, ripe orchard fruit and a whiff of beeswax. The enveloping palate doles out juicy yellow pear, creamy white peach and a hint of citrus, while a mineral note brightens the finish.
A sleek, minerally white, light- to medium-bodied and offering a stony underpinning to the finely meshed notes of green pear, light herb, pink grapefruit zest and white pepper. Drink now through 2024. 54,000 cases made, 50,000 cases imported.
I was able to taste two whites released under the Terlato Vineyards label, both of which are terrific wines. Starting with the 2017 Pinot Grigio, it's a sweetly fruited, charming effort that has plenty of apple and sweet citrus aromas, medium body, a rounded, lush texture, and a good finish. Drink it over the coming year.
