Bolla Pinot Grigio

Bolla Pinot Grigio Name: Bolla
Varietal: Pinot Grigio
Country: Italy
Vintage: 2015
Price: $15.99


Why did I decide to try this wine? The Mr. doesn't typically do the wine shopping, but last weekend he decide to give it a whirl. He bought two bottles hoping they were ones we had never tried before (his memory is not the best when it comes to this stuff...). It worked out in his favour because we hadn't tried either! This was the first one we tried.

Would I prefer one glass or indulge in the bottle? Glass. It was actually better the more you drank, but it's not one I would rush to purchase again.

What shoes would I wear drinking this wine? Plain, beige flats. Basically there was nothing exciting about this wine - similar to these shoes. They get the job done, are practical and not that bad, but overall you wouldn't typically rush out to buy them.

How would I describe the wine? According to the bottle it has aromas of peach, melon, pear and lime. This is not what I smelled... in my note book I wrote "smells like clams with a hint of pear". So I am thinking that I was either craving seafood or there is something wrong with my nose, haha. At least I had the pear part right though... I do stand by what I smelled and would say that this wine would actually go very well with oysters, clams or mussels as it was dry with a bit of a sparkle to it.
