Natalie's Score: 89/100

Fresh and crisp Argentina white wine made from the Pinot Grigio grape, though leaning more to the drier style of Pinot Gris than the fruitier style of Pinot Grigio. Lovely floral notes along with Asian pear and quince. The grapes are grown in a high altitude area of the Mendoza River. Pair with fresh seafood and sushi.

Reviews and Ratings

Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

For $12, this will probably be my go-to party white wine. The winemaker, Sergio said they made the wine to be more toward pinot gris style. The nose is very floral and tropical fruits but on the palate, it's dry, crisp but with a balance of fruits. It can be paired with seafood, sashimi, ceviche, and all kinds of salad.
Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This fresh Pinot Grigio is something unique coming out of Argentina. The high altitude overlooking the Mendoza River is where these grapes are grown and gives them a light floral quality. The natural acidity complements the pineapple candy and fresh apple flavours on the palate. This wine is more of a Pinot Gris style with crisp minerality. Very refreshing and excellent value.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Made in a "Pinot Gris" style for this Pinot Grigio is very dry, crisp and floral. Pale lemon colour with brilliant bright aromas of ripe golden delicious apple, cantaloupe, pineapple, honeysuckle, daffodils and a touch of clay minerals. Based on this bouquet it was expected to reflect some sweetness but this is very dry and crisp echoing some of the melon and aromatic apple notes. Medium body and acidity with some sweet orange clementine persisting into the fragrant finish. Excellent value for under $15!
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This pale straw wine has interesting aromas of apple, white flowers, and candied fruit. It has a medium-full mouthfeel and medium acidity. Its finish is long in citrus and tropical notes.

Aromas of apple, citrus. Palette is crisp and sour with green apple and lime and was more sour than I was expected for a Pinot Grigio but it was nice and light which could be enjoyed with seafood dish. Great value at $12!

A nicely fruited wine with white stone fruit, citrus and a hint of green pineapple. Good for sipping. 88 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Wineboy rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A touch of sulphur dioxide on the nose, but this should blow off shortly after opening. Light and bright with a nutty note late.
