Crystal clear with almost no color, if anything maybe a tinge of yellow-green. Quite strong floral and ripe fruit aromas. Smooth (yet intense) green apple and mineral taste with a crisp finish. Very delicious sipping wine and the refreshing green apple flavors make it Very Easy Drinking. The acidity goes extremely well with the creamy smooth cheddar cheese. I grew up on a farm in Norton, New Jersey (about 100 miles West of New York City) and this wine really reminds me of Spring time smells on the farm…fresh fruit blossoms and aromas associated with clean, light green fields of hay after an April shower. Wow, it’s good wine!!! The Verdicchio grape makes a very Unique wine and I would buy it again in a flash….and it’s a bargain wine at $11.20. I love Pinot Grigio and this Verdicchio is right up there with the best of them.
