J Vineyards 2014 Pinot Gris ($14)

This Pinot Gris (pee-no gree) from J Vineyards has light and delicate fruit flavors of lime, pear and pineapple. Pinot Gris, also known as Pinot Grigio in Italy, has medium acidity for a bit of a mouthwatering finish. In the USA, Pinot Gris is typically described as fruity and dry as compared to the Italian version that has more mineral flavors.  Chill this wine and enjoy it with soft, light cheeses, fish and chicken.
