The 2008 Mandolina Pinot Grigio is a part of the Italian inspired portfolio of wines at Lucas & Lewellen. Winemaker Megan McGrath Gates uses the Los Alamos Vineyards as her source, but keeps true to the vines’ Mediterranean heritage, extracting the deeply aromatic, bright fruit flavors that have made these Italian varietals so popular for generations. The Los Alamos Valley’s warm summer days and cool coastal nights provide the perfect growing environment for these Italian grapes, promoting a long and balanced ripening season to achieve the crisp, natural acidity and fresh fruit flavors.
Lucas & Lewellen’s 2008 Mandolina Pinot Grigio shows subtle aromas of lemon peel, lily flower, jasmine tea, and pear, with a light, delicate presence and a bright finish. This Pinot Grigio will be a delicious complement to a variety of dishes including goat cheese ravioli pasta, pancetta stuffed roasted turkey, salads, fruit, and a range of cheeses.
The 2008 Mandolina Pinot Grigio is a Gold Medal Special Selection, offered exclusively to our members as a pre-release from the winery! Enjoy this wine and drink to “la dolce vita” – the sweet life!
