Contralto Pinot Grigio 2017 Sainsbury’s Winemaker’s Selection

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…

Rocca Murer Pinot Grigio 2017

My most read review of the last year was for Rocca Murer Pinot Grigio 2016. This review has had hundreds of hits, from all over the world. If you type Rocca Murer Pinot Grigio into Google, the top hit is for my review.  This shows the global reach of Cavit wines. I think it also…

Marks & Spencer Pinot Grigio delle Venezie

I’ve written elsewhere about the insipid nature of so many Pinot Grigios, however this is good wine and is currently at an unbeatable price point. Tasting notes: This Pinot Grigio is from the Venezie region of  North East Italy. Crisp, fresh flavours of citrus. Dry. A little complexity; better than most supermarket offerings, which I…

I thought it was good – if rather on the pricey side for Pinot Grigio. Tasting notes: Light, fruity, dry white. Flavours of fresh pear and lime. Wine Colour – White Price –…

Tesco Finest Pinot Grigio, Cantina de Monteforte

‘You get what you pay for.’ Not always with wine, I’m afraid. I saw an interesting clip on YouTube this week of some Dutch wine Vloggers who took 3Euro wine into a wine tasting and offered it to experts who pronounced it good and worth up to 80Euro a bottle… I’ve had plenty of disappointing,…

Rocca Murer Pinot Grigio

As I’ve written before, there are a lot of ‘meh’ Pinot Grigios on the shelves. This one, in a tall bottle and from Trentino, Italy looked promising. I thought it was good, slightly different to the majority of Pinot Grigios; it had an interesting initial taste and a little complexity – good value at £6….

Comuna Pinot Grigio – Sainsbury’s

Pinot Grigio is probably the world’s favourite wine. A lot of it is insipid plonk, good for glugging with Doritos and a movie. Italy sells more Pinot Grigio than it produces apparently. Apparently this is because it’s the world’s most faked wine. Why on earth would you fake a wine that retails at £5 a…
