Masquerade 2012 Pinot Grigio

Masquerade 2012 Pinot Grigio, $5.99-$9.99, 83 points, poured a light lemon/lime color, but trended gray toward the rim.
The nose was seriously quiet, and that nondescript character carried over onto the palate.
A light body displayed mild acidity with little intensity, but a hint of limestone minerality was not enough to carry the day; however, as a quaffing white wine, Masquerade 2012 Pinot Grigio was okay, and paired satisfactorily with fried haddock.
Finished fair with light spice notes, easy 12% alcohol, and hints of citrus. There was nothing offensive about this wine, but not much more than spiked mineral-water.

  1. "Seriously quiet" and "spiked mineral-water" descriptors does not make me want to try this wine.
    Love the bunny!
