Contralto Pinot Grigio 2017 Sainsbury’s Winemaker’s Selection

blog 193

My most read review of the last year was for a Pinot Grigio. This review has had hundreds of hits, from all over the world. This shows that people may be a little unsure about this wine, and google it whilst in the supermarket to see if it’s any good. This isn’t surprising as Sainsbury has a range of about 30 different Pinot Grigios from around the world. and the variation in price is only £2 – so which one to pick? This is from Sicily; I’ve been there twice and can honestly say that I’ve never had a bad bottle of Sicilian wine -this was good value at £5.50 and better than many others at this price point.

Tasting notes: Straw colour. Initially some mineral notes. Hints of citrus.
