Wine Review – Central England Co-Operative – 2014 Pinot Grigio

Imagine this; you’ve had a busy and challenging week and an even more stressful weekend. You need deserve to relax and unwind. The sun is still shining at the end of what has been a wonderfully warm day, but sadly you haven’t seen much of it as you’ve been stuck indoors (out of necessity, not out of choice). In the fridge is a wonderfully chilled bottle of the Co-Operative’s 2014 Pinot Grigio, and in the cupboard are clean (large) wine glasses.

You put your favourite track of music on in the background, pour yourself a glass of wine, kick off your shoes, take a sip of the cold, refreshing liquid, then lean back and close your eyes as you lose yourself in the music and the beautiful wine you’re tasting. Sounds perfect doesn’t it? I can assure you it was, and indeed a much needed end to my week.

The Co-Operative 2014 Pinot Grigio is a light and dry, very pale coloured white wine from Italy. It’s a blend of Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay grapes that has a fresh taste. It needs to be served chilled, straight from the fridge; it’s perfect as an apéritif but goes equally well with chicken, salads and seafood.

This glass of wine was the prefect antidote to my week and to my weekend. So to that I’ll raise my glass to you and the Co-Operative, and say CHEERS!

I was sent a voucher from the Midlands Co-Operative to buy a bottle of wine to review. The choice of wine and the opinions stated above are my own and were not influenced by the provision of the voucher.
