2008 Kim Crawford Pinot Grigio

Up today is a 2008 Kim Crawford pinot grigio from New Zealand's east coast that ran me in the low teens.

Another nice pinot with notes of apple and pear and good body, but another one that wasn't nearly as tasty after a night in the fridge.  Maybe they're too chilled and I should try warming them up slightly before I drink them on the second day?

Since this review is pretty much a clone of my last one, here's some interesting background on pinot gris/grigio grapes from wikipedia: "Pinot gris (also known as Pinot grigio) is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. Thought to be a mutant clone of the Pinot noir grape, it normally has a grayish-blue fruit, accounting for its name (gris meaning "grey" in French) but the grape can have a brownish pink to black and even white appearance. The word pinot, which comes from the word meaning "pine cone" in French, could have been given to it because the grapes grow in small pine cone-shaped clusters. The wines produced from this grape also vary in colour from a deep golden yellow to copper and even a light shade of pink."
