Weekly Wine – Barefoot

15 Jul

SONY DSCBarefoot Pinot Grigio
Year: N/A
USA
750ml
12.5% ABV
$9.95 (LCBO)

This wine sneaks nicely under the $10 limit I set myself. The question is – is it worth more?
It is a nice wine. A little sharper, crispier, harsher, than some other Pinot Grigio’s in this price range. I spent a bit of time trying to decide whether this flavour, weather this wine was harsh or crisp.
It is a fine distinction and an interesting divide in a wine. To say a wine is harsh is not a positive aspect of a wine. A crisp wine, on the other hand is nothing but a positive.
Crisp?
Harsh?
One can think too much about wine. The wine is harsh-ish because there is a bit of sourness that creeps into the palate. It’s not a bad thing in this wine but it does not give it the crispness that one would like.
All-in-all a good wine. One that I enjoyed drinking and thinking about.
