I bought this a little hesitantly since I had bad luck with Arcadia’s Sauvignon Gris but my friends at Solera promised me it would be good and they have yet to steer me wrong. And I’ll give another chance to anyone who uses peacocks on all its labels. At I think only 75 TL (minus the 25% take away discount) this Sauvignon Gris Pinot Gris blend isn’t cheap, but it won’t break the bank.
Brilliant pale gold in the glass at least this Arcadia was starting off on a pretty foot. The nose was also quite lovely with white flowers, melon, and tropical notes with an underlying sweetness (probably the flowers). On the palate it was all zesty acid and citrus with tropical notes and more flowers.
The guys at Solera are rarely wrong, I did indeed like this one. This could pair very well with food but was also quite enjoyable on its own. I’m not waxing poetic as I often do for the red wines, but more white wines like this and the Kayra Viognier and I might stop drinking white wines only in the summer.
