The daffodils are already starting to bloom and the forecast is calling for high’s approaching 70 degrees. So, let’s drink some crisp white wine and soak up the sunshine! The 2015 vintage was outstanding throughout Europe and this beautiful Northern Italian Pinot Grigio from Tolloy is evidence of that. The nose is textbook PG with a flinty overtone that sits atop delicate scents of honeysuckles, lemon zest, and fuzzy white peach skin. Take a sip and delight in the lifted, juicy palate with all its wonderful citrus, pear, and peach. Then finish your sip, and notice the undercurrent of minerality that is the hallmark of the exceptional whites from Alto Adige. Sometimes Pinot Grigio is so light it’s like having a glass of water with some lemon squeezed in, but not Tolloy. This bottle has some real texture and interest! Please stop by the shop this evening to taste the 2015 Tolloy Pinot Grigio for free. It may just become your “house white” for the Summer!
Food Pairing:A bottle of mineral-laden Alto Adige Pinot Grigio is an excellent companion for a bunch of different meals from a simple cheese plate to seared scallops drizzled with garlic and thyme infused butter. We’ve been doing steamed mussels a good bit at the house lately though and I think the 2015 Tolloy is a perfect match for them. Our current favorite preparation is to start some freshly grated garlic and ginger in olive oil then add some crushed red pepper flakes before tossing the mussels in and a healthy splash of wine to gently steam them open. Grab a big hunk of fresh French bread to sop up the sauce and you’re in heaven.
