Wine Review: Llano Estacado Pinot Grigio 2016

Llano Estacado Pinot Grigio 2016

This is the first of five wines that I'll be reviewing for Llano Estacado out of TEXAS! Yes, TEXAS! It's the 2016 Pinot Grigio followed by the 2015 Viognier, 2015 Signature Red, 2015 Cellar Reserve Chardonnay, and finally the 2014 THP Montepulciano.

Spanish monks made Texas and New Mexico the first of the would-be-states in today's USA to grow vineyards and make their own wine in the 1620's. Llano Estacado was established in Western Texas in 1976, and has become the best selling premium winery in the state. Their current winemaker Greg Bruni took over that position in 1993.

The 2016 Pinot Grigio is 77% Pinot Grigio from Reddy Vineyards on the Texas High Plain and 23% Sauvignon Blanc, fermented in stainless steel, and saw no oak aging. It's vegan friendly and has an ABV of 13.5%.

NOTE: In advance of moving to a new house and the arrival of a new baby, the reviews for March, April and May were all written in February and may be much quicker and to the point than you expect from this blog. Foolishness will return this summer.

ZZ TOP
How could I kick off a bunch of reviews for Texas wine without jamming to ZZ Top as my music selection? I would never forgive myself if I didn't! So let's crank up some ZZ and get to tasting!

The color of the wine a light yellow, but darker than most Pinot Grigios. The nose is floral with white flowers and has a dusty minerality, with fruit aromas of pears and lemon and melon. In the mouth it's medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a zesty acidity. On the palate there's flavors of lemon-lime, pineapple and melon. It finishes with salivating acidity and a long lasting aftertaste of lemon-lime. Yummy yummy!

The 23% Sauvignon Blanc that's in this Pinot Grigio adds weight and character, and prevents it from being a typical lemon-water Pinot Grigio. I really dig it, man. Hell, for only $9 a bottle I would slosh this down any damn day! It would be a great pairing for Italian sausage with peppers and onions.

QUALITY VS PRICE RATING
Price: $9
Rating: 4/5 = Recommended (what does that mean?)

The bottle used was supplied free of charge for the purpose of this unpaid review. To have your wine reviewed follow this link.
