Values Wine Picks July 26, 2013

Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: May 14, November 15, October 16 and August 3.

White Wine

Manu Pinot Grigio 2012, Marlborough, New Zealand: Crisp, clean and ultra-dry with mouth-watering acidity. Light-bodied. Notes of lime zest, lemon and white grapefruit. Pair with shellfish.
