Wine Wednesdays - 2012 St. Michael Eppan Pinot Grigio

Hi all, happy Wednesday!  For my first weekend out at the beach we picked up a "cheap and cheerful" white wine to accompany our dinner.  Little did I know that this pinot grigio would surprise me!  I typically pass over pinot grigio as I tend to find it underwhelming, overly acidic, and falls flat compared to other favorites.  However, this wine really stood out. 

St. Michel Eppan is located in the Alto Adige region in the northeast of Italy.  The winery is over 100 years old and is known for producing some of the best wines of the region.  This pinot grigio had a fresh nose of green apple, mineral notes, and slightly floral.  The taste was much fuller bodied than I would have expected; balanced acidity and structure lead to a round and lasting finish.  It paired quite well with our fresh grilled local mahi mahi and vegetables.  Why does everything taste better on the grill??!!
