Your date was so pretty in her sundress, and so charming as she explained her new tattoo, that the both of you forget you were eating free breadsticks at Olive Garden. After so much Sauvignon Blanc and Albarino, it’s easy to forget there’s a lighter, less spicy side to white wines. This Pinot Grigio is that: less complicated, less controversial, and likely forgettable. But nevertheless, it’s very, very nice in the moment. Served paired with a chicken breast lightly fried in sesame oil, this went down very nicely. Nose is barely there, taste notes are only hints of apple, spice and lemon. Everything about this is subtle. Sure, it’s mid-grade, chain restaurant quality, but you’ll have enough fun to enjoy it anyway.
