Pale yellow in color with greenish reflections. The nose recalls acacia flowers and the delicate scent of almonds. Clean and refreshing on the palate with hints of linden and honey. Recommended with risotto dishes and grilled white meats.

Kris is one of the great values in Pinot Grigio. Tank-fermented and aged, it is a light-bodied wine which exhibits good texture along with plenty of peach, tangerine, and citrusy notes. This fruity, dry Italian white is ideal for drinking during its first 12 months of life. 87 pts Robert Parker
