Manilow Pinot Grigio 2007 wine review by (PB)


Disclosure--Stiletto Entertainment sent this wine to the Winecask Blog for review.

This is one of the iconic singer--Barry Manilow's endeavors and its a decent start. This varietal is from the Sagro Hills region of Abruzzo, Italy.

It is a pale golden with a big fruity, candied bouquet of sweet citrus and something that just eludes my identification. As close as I can come is a touch of the orange, marshmallow "circus peanuts" we ate as kids with an end note of vanilla. Interesting!

In the mouth the wine is quite crisp with a nice mouth feel and solid citrusy flavors in an off dry style. This should make a good food wine with a nice acid foundation to clean up a fatigued palate. Finishes with a lemony touch.

Pinot Grigio is making a bit of a comeback these days and is unique enough to hold its own in a market glutted by wine galore. At the $14 price point (I believe) all I can say is even 'Mandy' would like this wine. "Raise a glass!"
