Name: Kris Pinot Grigio
Kris is consistently one of my favorite summertime Pinot Grigios. It has gotten a bit more expensive over time but I found a great deal on this bottle at a Wegman’s market. Kris makes a more substantial Pinot Grigio than you typically find. Many wines of this type are so light and delicate that there’s barely any flavor in my opinion. It’s a wine for folks that don’t really like wine. Kris always makes theirs with more color, character and flavor and this one is no exception.
It has a light straw color with an aroma of citrus and honeysuckle. There’s a hint of vanilla when it first makes contact with your tongue and a light mouthfeel. The flavor progresses with some light acidity, a slight nuttiness and more citrus fruit. This is another great, affordable Pinot Grigio from Kris, highly recommended.
