Due Uve 2009
50% Pinot Grigio, 50% Sauvingnon Blanc.
I am not a fan of most Pinot Grigios or Sauvingon Blancs. I am not a fan of grapefruit juice, alcoholic or not, not to mention the stink of cat pee on the nose which describes most Sauvingon Blancs from New Zealand in my experience. This was from Veneto so I felt a little safer in this choice.
The Due Uve was nicely aromatic (apricot?), not too tart, not too sweet, and very refreshing. Light color. The second day was as good as the first. Works against an array of summer picnic type foods.
