Manilow Pinot Grigio 2007 Wine Review (NW)

Disclosure: This bottle was sent to The Wine Cask Blog compliments of Stilletto Entertainment for review.

Tasting notes:

Nose of fresh peaches and citrus notes

Acidic core with citrus and chalk on the palate

Finish of pear and nicely tapering mineral layers.

I usually cringe at seeing celebrities or entertainers on wine labels- and there are plenty of them. When I received this bottle with the description of the iconic Barry Manilow brand on the back label, I thought of all the "Fanilows" that this wine will appeal to. I didn't think it would also appeal to me.

I never would have reached for this wine in a shop, but I quickly learned once again not to judge a book by its cover. This is a nicely crafted Pinot Grigio with a very desirable combination of fruit, acidity, and minerality. A sampling of prices puts this wine at $15 or so. Raise a glass!
