Montana Pinot Grigio 2007 North Island

By | November 23, 2008

Montana’s Sauvignon Blanc has earned its place on the must-buy grocery list for great value, dependably good, crowd pleasing wine.  They’re experts at Sauvignon Blanc.  That doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be experts at anything else, but I gave their Pinot Grigio a go.
It was alarmingly pale, but smelled full of colour. It had candied pineapple and ripe grapes and Opal-Fruit like sweet fuit mix, despite being a dry wine. It was good. Certainly better than I expected of a run of the mill Pinot Grigio for under £8 a bottle from Sainsbury’s.
It hasn’t made its way onto my ‘banker’ list, but I’d certainly buy it again and share it with both Sauvignon and Pinot loving friends.
