This was the second wine I tried as part of De Bortoli’s recent BellaRiva releases. I’ve not previously tried a vermentino or vermentino blend, which having tasted this wine, is apparently an omission on my part. I really quite enjoyed this offering at $18. Pears and lemon citrus came together on the nose. The charm here was that the typical pinot grigio fatness on the palate was balanced by good acidity and a saltiness presumably from the vermentino. I really felt like drinking this refreshing wine. Good stuff. 86 points.
