"Lithe and lively, this juicy, crowd-pleasing white offers flavors of nectarine, apple blossom, grated ginger and stone, with a zesty overtone. Drink now through 2019. 11,650 cases made.–AN " (WS)

"The Cantina Terlano 2016 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio is a bright and forthcoming white wine with an impeccably clean and snappy style. The wine shows delicate tones of white peach, nectarine and passion fruit. There are subtle tones of dried hay or garden herb at the back. This is a great pairing partner to spicy foods or sushi. This Pinot Grigio ages on the lees in large oak barrel for eight months. This is an excellent value option." (WA)

Winery Notes:
It is light straw in color with pleasant aromas of ripe melon and freshly picked MacIntosh apples. Crisp and light on the palate with lovely pineapple, Bartlett pear and apple flavors that harmoniously intermingle with orange zest and almond notes. The finish lingers with spicy tropical fruit. Pairs equally well with light seafood dinners and richer cream-based sauces.
