A Merchant's Pick

Featured September 08, 2009


Fashionistas everywhere have begun their annual practice of not wearing white after Labor Day. Fortunately, those rules don't apply to wine and certainly not after tasting the 2008 Substance Pinot Gris from Washington State.
    A play on the periodic table, Substance is all about the natural "elements" of wine. Their single vineyard Pinot Gris (Pinot Grigio) is an outstanding value rivaling some of the best Italian Pinot Grigio and Alsacian Pinot Gris producers.
    No oak is used to showcase the true essence of the fruit, which shows aromas of melon, apricot along with floral scents. Fresh flavors of pear and apple abound with hints of grapefruit. Crisp and bright from the wines balanced acidity, Substance has a richness not found at these price points.
    Enjoy this small production gem as a perfect transition from Summer into Autumn. Enjoy with seafood, chicken, Asian food, and non-tomato based pastas. Read More »
