The Andersons General Store is such a wonderful place to shop for wine. They have an extensive selection of wines that could keep you busy searching for hours on end. One of my favorite things is trolling their close-out aisles. I’ve found some really cheap wines that have been priced accordingly as well some true gems that for one reason or another have been priced to move. The Andersons definitely has variety!
This 2004 Kettmeir Pinot Grigio is quiet a gem. Priced very nicely, this wine also tastes much better than you might suspect based on price alone.
It is a dry, light bodied Pinot Grigio that would be a wonderful summer wine. It has a good fruity taste without even coming close to being sweet. It has a good sharp acidity that lingers through the finish.
Kettmeir is located in Northern Italy in the Trentino-Alto Adige region it is nestled in the Dolomites where the autumn night temperatures can give the maturing grapes their best characteristics for flavor and aroma. This is ideal for white wines and it shows in this offering. By all means search out Kettmeier if you are looking for a great tasting wine at a reasonable price.
