When Robert Parker reviewed a few Avalon wines last year, he commented that he like them because of "their forward, uncomplicated, naked fruit styles." And that pretty much hits the nail on the head. Today's double feature brings the Avalon Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc, each just $99 per case. If you love whites with honest, pure fruit, then it’s time to stock up and ship free!

On the nose the wine shows aromatics of a slightly grassy note with plenty of citrus and tropical notes and a hint of minerality. The wine shows bright, pure flavors and good balance. The wine tastes of fresh pineapple and crisp grapefruit with a clean, crisp finish. The addition of the Gewürztraminer contributes a subtle orange note to the wine on the back of the palate. In a word... delicious!
A clean wine perfect for pairing with seafood dishes, grilled chicken or oysters.
