Luna Vineyards Pinot Grigio 2008

“We may go to the moon, but that’s not very far. The greatest distance we have to cover still lies within us.” — Charles de Gaulle

Travel great distances to procure a bottle of the Luna Vineyards Pinot Grigio, not to the moon perhaps, but go the distance.  The wine is divine.  Pale gold, like moon light, flavors of citrus (grapefuit and lemon) with mango and tropical fruit notes with a soft mineral finish.  The perfect pairing is Shrimp Scampi.

The details: 14.1% alcohol.  Screw-cap closure.  Appellation: Napa.  The grapes are 95% pinot grigio and 5% chardonnay.  Suggested retail $18 USD (actual retail about $9-13) the wine is widely distributed or purchase directly from Luna Vineyards.  This was a media sample generously faciltated by The Barn Group.

The music match is “New Moon on Monday” by Duran Duran from the album Seven & the Ragged Tiger.
