Yalumba The Y Series Pinot Grigio

Not since De Bortoli Windy Peak 2008 has any sub-$15 grigio looked more refined than this. No corners have been cut in the recipe, and oh how it shows! Whole bunch pressing preserves its luscious poached pear generosity and taut lemon and grapefruit crispness, while wild yeast fermentation and aging on lees build texture and mouthfeel, carrying long and linear through the finish. Sensational value at $9 at Purvis Cellars.
