2016 Bayshore Pinot Grigio

This California Pinot Grigio is a very good crisp white wine.  Slightly sweeter than the Italian version but really appropriate for the warm weather.  Melon, grapefruit flavors that pop when its slightly lower than room temperature.  Chilled takes away the flavor so take your choice.

So I jumped out here and brought me and my buddy this Wine opening accessory and thought this would be cool to try out.  Even though the Better business bureau had a few complaints about it.  One of my viewers asked were there an easy way of opening up wine bottles and something I could recommend.  I'm ole school but I thought I would try this product because it looked pretty cool.

A blend of primarily 90% Pardina, also known as Cayetana Blanca and Jaen Blanco, this grape is grown abundantly in northwest Spain even though it is not commonly known in the U.S..  It displays a lemon-gold color, with a subtle nose of pear and fennel, and flavors of citrus and subdued melon in a medium bodied, medium acid, fresh white that is excellent when cold.

Soft and light on the palate, it's a dry wine with a tinge of sweetness - notes of honeysuckle, lemon curd, and stone fruit are balanced with vibrant minerality.

A cheerful, translucid, lemon-yellow and slightly pétillant white wine, Vinho Verde literally means ‘green wine’ and is named after the northwest Portugese region from which it originates. 

It is typically a blend of various percentages of Alvarinho, Loureiro, Trajadura, and Pedernã (Arinto) giving it a charmingly light sparkle.
