2020 Kirkland Signature Pinot Grigio Friuli

2020 Kirkland Signature Pinot Grigio Friuli

This is always a tough bottle for me to review, and might be even trickier this year with this new 2020 vintage.

As I’ve mentioned in prior reviews, I think I did figure it out a bit. This wine is situational. If it’s 100 degrees and you’re on the beach or a boat, and you pull this one out fully chilled it might be amazing. On other occasions not quite as cool as that, it might fall flat.

One good thing with the 2020 vintage is that there was actually a price drop. That’s right. The already super low price of $5.99 was just reduced to $4.99. That’s a pretty good deal for any drinkable bottle of wine.

I looked over our past reviews and was surprised with how many vintages of this wine we’ve tasted.

And this new one falls right in the middle for me.

It pours almost clear with just a faint yellow tint; juicy citrus fruit on the nose, built for summertime. In the mouth, more juicy fruit, orange peel, tangerine and green apple flavors. Light body, good acidity; simple but not too shabby.

If you’re like me, you might want to grab a few of these and hold for the summer months. Fans of Pinot Grigio and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc might get into this one.

By the way, and this is a discussion for the comments, but rumors are that the Kirkland Ti Point Sauvignon Blanc has been discontinued. I know that was another summer time favorite for a lot of readers. Let us know if you’ve seen it lately. Rating: 86 points

This is my go-to white, but like Frank, I usually pay $2 more and lean towards Kirkland's prosecco (with the light purple foil). I buy that by the case!!!

It’s a food wine! Chicken Piccata with artichokes! Molto bene! It’s not a sit and drinker.
