Vintages Wine Panel: Pinot Grigio’s success is instantly understandable when presented with a very fine, well-made example. Such is the case with Stocco’s 2008 vintage. Pale straw in colour, the aromas feature fresh pear, apple, dried spice and stony mineral notes. It’s dry, medium-bodied with a rich texture, and fresh fruit flavours balanced by a zippy seam of acidity building to a medium-length, mineral-infused finish. My note: A rather full-bodied version of Pinot Grigio but nonetheless refreshing and mouth-watering. Notes of green melon, grapefruit and lime zest.

Pinot Grigio food pairings: seafood risotto, shrimp pasta.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
