De Bortoli BellaRiva Pinot Grigio Vermentino 2010

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.
