Wine Review: Flip Flop Pinot Grigio

Flip Flop Pinot Grigio 2010flipflop-pinot-grigio_300

Admittedly, I’m a flip flop girl. Something about living by the beach for the last 13 years of my life…I dig flip flops. So it would seem appropriate, that I’d enjoy a wine of the same name.

Must. Have. Wine. Mommy-Approved Score: 4 STARS

Price: $8 – $12

Where I found it: Target

Reviews from wine experts:

Review from Reverse Wine Snob: The 2010 FlipFlop Pinot Grigio has aromas of citrus, pear, a little honey and some grapefruit. The wine tastes of citrus, pear, peach, and guava. This is a light and crisp wine that is not too sweet but sweet enough. The wine has good acidity all the way thru and ends on the tart side with grapefruit flavors. I don’t think it changed my general impression of this variety, but overall this a nice expression of the grape and very affordable.

Review from MsShannonVee: In this video I share with you my thoughts on flipflop’s Pinot Grigio. Very light, zesty, clean finish. Smooth and enjoyable. Great buy! flipflop continues to never disappoint.

Review from The Frugal Wine Snob: The Flipflop 2010 Pinot Grigio, is big, velvety, buttery, and creamy, like a Chardonnay, but a little more citrusy and a little sweeter. It has a pleasantly silky mouth-feel. And get this: it didn’t suffer at all as it warmed. With many whites, one must quickly pour a little, get the bottle back into the cold, and limp along keeping the temp just right—not so with this one. Making a Pinot Grigio that’s rich and creamy like this takes knowledge and skill.

From the FlipFlop site:

  • Appellation – California
  • Tastes like light-bodied, refreshing Pinot Grigio with tropical citrus, ripe pear and a zesty, clean finish
  • It is full of balanced crisp acidity
  • Eat with bruschetta, spaghetti carbonara, eggplant parmesan or your favorite tacos

Cheers! Leah
