Bright Eyed Bird, 2010 California Pinot Grigio

Bright-Eyed-Label-111810-1
Taste

Pale straw in color, this Pinot Grigio offers floral aromatics in a nose dominated by pear and peach. In the mouth, flavors of tart green apples and lemon zest come alive with a hint of honey on the palate. Acidity and fruit are beautifully balanced.

Varietal

100% Pinot Grigio

Region

Pinot Grigio is Italy’s star white, but in California’s Central Coast it truly shines. Monterey County vineyards above the fog line allow grapevines to benefit from full sun, yet maritime breezes moderate afternoon heat allowing the grapes to attain their maximum potential.

Winemaking

Fermented in stainless steel tanks and crafted entirely without oak, this wine is the result of a collaborative effort with Hahn Family Wines, an award-winning producer of Pinot Grigios. They’ve been making wine in Monterey County for more than three decades with eight distinct proprietary brands of their own under their belt.

    A really nice summer wine for a hot day on the deck enjoying friends with a small antipasto.

    Bright flavors, make this a great wine to serve well chilled

    very crisp and perfect level of sweetness for my palate. Could definitely taste the different fruits. I would buy this wine again.
