2014 Jermann Pinot Grigio

jermannThe 2014 Jermann Pinot Grigio does not depart from the foundation laid by its predecessors.  This is BIG Friulian white wine with lots of stone fruits – peach, apricot, and touches of pineapple are mixed with the sea spray, brine, and piercing minerality you have come to expect; the finish is of fresh water with touches of fruit and minerals.  It pairs perfectly with everything from bitter green salads to anchovies to chicken roasted with pancetta.

Texture is the key in Friuli, and Jermann is one of its masters.  This Pinot Grigio is powerful and primary right now.  But it will age – I drank a magnum of the 1998 in 2012 (as did many of you with me), and it was awesome.  Wild and exotic to be sure, but darned  amazing all the same.
