Argentine Pinot Gris

Alder provides a well-written back story of the Lurton wine dynasty.

I provide a quicktake on the Lurton's Pinot Gris from Argentina:

LurtonpgBodega J&F Lurton Pinot Gris, '04 ($7)

  • From Mendoza
  • Pale, light gold in color with a thin watery rim
  • Simple, fruity scents of citrus, white pear, and pineapple
  • A fairly full-bodied Pinot Gris.  It offers a viscous mouthfeel along with fruity flavors.  There is a bit of acidity along with something of a nutty flavor.  The wine finishes a bit flabby (i.e. low acidity, high-ish alcohol)
  • I enjoyed this PG's weight in my mouth.  However, the finish was not terribly endearing.  Yet for seven bucks, it aint half bad

**.5 (2.5 stars out of 5)
