Astoria Alisia Pinot Grigio DOC
This is what Pinot Grigio should be like. Astoria Alisia Pinot Grigio is fresh yet soft on the palate, with hay and nutty notes alongside delicate peppery spice with delicious pear fruit and a perfect level of acidity to refresh the palate. As you would expect, no oak is used as it would detract from the natural purity of fruit. A pastry- free spinach tarts with porcini sauce recipe is a beautiful complement to this wine, click here for the recipe.

Why we like this wine
Without doubt, Pinot Grigio is the must buy wine these days but what started as a full and fruity white wine has been increasingly diluted by merchants striving to drive down the price. What is often sold these days is a pale reflection of what the wine should be. This is a true Pinot Grigio, packed withe ripe fruit flavours and perfumes with good acidity to balance and refresh the palate. An exceptional wine to please most palates
