Weekly Wine – Copper Moon

SONY DSCCopper Moon Pinot Grigio
N/A
Canada
750ml
12% ABV
$9.95 (LCBO)

Hey… Here’s an inexpensive Canadian white wine that isn’t half bad.
To be honest, I have not had a bad Pinot Grigio. It is a foolproof grape.
This wine is a blend of Canadian and imported Pinot Grigio wines, so it should not be too difficult to make it OK. I’ve even made Pinot Grigio at a wine making place and it turned out well.

Actually… this wine tastes like that. It has a body of one of those wines.
Usually Pinot Grigio wines are light in flavour and body. This one is heavy. It has weight. It is not unpleasant, but it has this metallic after taste to it. These be the sulphites. They are quite pronounced when the wine drops to room temperature. But it is not that bad.
I am quite taken by this wine. That said – there are better wines at this price. But if one wants a heavy Pinot Grigio, this is the one.
