July Wine Pick: Bieler Family "Daisy" Pinot Grigio 2017

Bieler Family "Daisy" Pinot Grigio 2017

It's July and I've got a lot of good stuff lined up! Dane Cellars returns with four full wine reviews, and Left Coast comes back as well with two full reviews and two quickies. For other full reviews I've got a Godello and a Mencia from Spain, and a Chardonnay from Marshal Davis. For quickies I'm revisiting Rodney Strong Rosé to see if I had a faulty bottle, three Italian whites and a rosé, two Vermouths, Artezin Zinfandel makes another appearance, more canned wine, and... frozen rosé??? Of course, as always, things will be added as the month moves along.

I'm hoping to get Part 2 of my Saké articles up. Also, Wine Bloggers Off-Topic #3 is about our most inspirational historical figure, so if you want to join in then just email me at

So I was at a spring trade tasting this year and the salesperson had marked a bunch of stuff in the book that she wanted me to try. When I literally had five minutes before I had to leave, I quickly looked through the book to find one item she had suggested instead of a whole table... and then I saw one arrow with a heart that she had drawn next to it... and it's name was Daisy. The name of my two-year old. That was it, I had to try it. And it was delicious!

Daisy Pinot Grigio is actually 75% Pinot Grigio, 13% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Riesling, and 2% Moscato from Columbia Valley, Washington State. Those other varieties blended in there give it character and some weight and make it, as that same salesperson says, a "Pinot Grigio with flavor".

There's aromas of honeysuckle, white pears, kiwi, and a little blade of grass. On the palate it's medium bodied with a rich and slick mouthfeel, and an acidity that is vibrant but not overdone. There's flavors of green apples, white pears, melon, and a tiny drop of licorice. And the finish goes on forever with white pears, melon, and some silky teeth coating.

This is a Pinot Grigio every customer I have suggested it to has loved. It's highly enjoyable and one hell of a deal for the price of admission.

Price: $11
Rating: 4.5/5 = Recommended / Highly Recommended (what does that mean?)

The bottle used was purchased by myself with my own money for purpose of this review. To have your wine reviewed follow this link.
