Inniskillin 2010 Okanagan Pinot Grigio: Great Grigio

Pinot Grigio is one of the trendier white wines and this Inniskillin Okanagan PG is a tasty one. Pinot Grigio as the Italians say, (or Pinot Gris as the French say) is the grey Pinot because the grapes have a grayish colour on the vine. Here in BC, wineries call it by either name....whatever you want to call it, it is the same grape. This white wine has a copper colour which is often the trademark of a Pinot Grigio. Unlike most BC whites, this has a relatively low level of alcohol  (11.5%) which allows it to be balanced and refreshing.  Aromas of apricot, orange rind, and a hint of banana greet your nose and palate. Like most BC whites, this has plenty of crisp acidity to make the wine a perfect apertif. I also enjoyed it with a Green Thai Pork Curry. Excellent example of a Pinot Grigio and at $16, almost cheap and plenty cheerful.
