Weekly Wine – Citra Grigio

15 Mar


Citra Pinot Grigio Terre di Chieti
2016
Italy
750ml
13% ABV
$8.95 (LCBO)

Like most pinot grigios this wine is OK.
It is light. It is crisp. It is slightly acidic and has a gentle flavour – Lemons I think.
It is well balanced. It is quite refreshing to drink and has no off flavours.
It is pleasant.
It says to serve well chilled but it also tastes ok just slightly chilled.
When warmed up a bit you get a slightly more pronounced acidity, probably caused by the added sulphites. But this is not a problem and only underlines the wine’s heritage of being under 10 bucks, and it is well under that sum.
Is this wine a superlative example of a Pinot Grigio – probably not, but it will match and surpass many wines that cost double the amount this wine costs.
Enjoy this one when you can.
