Bodega Santa Julia [+] Pinot Grigio 2016 Mendoza, Argentina 

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $12. 
My first wine from the 2016 vintage.

Light golden in color with a yellow tint.

Pronounced nose of diesel, lemons, green apples, minerals, light tropical fruits, cooked vegetables, almonds, melons, white pepper and green herbs.

Medium bodied and creamy, with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, sea salt, white pepper, minerals, spices, herbs, yeast, green apples and cream.

Medium finish with bitter almonds.

A nice, everyday Pinot Grigio from Mendoza, Argentina. Refreshing and creamy.
Nice on a hot day, and a good food wine.

This is my first Argentinian Pinot Grigio, and surprisingly, it has a lot of similarities to Riesling. Has more character than I expected from a PG.

Gets bitter as it warms up, but not bad for lunch. I paired it with a grilled salmon salad.

12.5% alcohol by volume.
