It’s a clear, pale yellowy green with reasonable legs. It smells fruity with a good dollop of banana-ry pear drops as well as over-ripe melon. It’s dry with a crisp but not overpowering acidity.
The cool fermentation pear drop taste carries through, along with the melon and some peachiness. It feels rather more full in the mouth than most pinot grigio, but with a sensible 12% alcohol. The fruit carries on for quite a while.
I quite liked this wine, and at under a fiver from Laithwaites it’s good value. My pinot grigio loving friend found it ‘a bit like artificially flavoured sweets’ and wasn’t a fan, but perhaps that’s way I thought it drinkable.
