Mondo Mondavi: On Tours, Reserve Wines, Alcohol Levels, and Looking People in the Eye

Most octogenarians are content to sit in a rocking chair and maybe visit their grandchildren, but not Margrit Mondavi: “I just love to meet people and I love to remember my late husband Robert and tell people a little bit about what we do at the winery.” With a platinum blonde bob and a beaming smile, Margrit Mondavi was the highlight at the dedication of a private dining room at Modus Ristorante in Toronto recently.

2008 Yellow Tail Reserve Pinot Grigio – South Eastern Australia

This Pinot Grigio is a pale gold green. Sweet fruit and a hint of herbs in the aroma. Light body, lightly sweet and lively, with a hint of tangerine and plenty of lime in both flavor and finish. It’s an easy to drink aperitif wine, especially at the end of a hot, muggy day, when you want a little more than a limeade and a little less than a cocktail. The wine became a bit more fruity as it opened in the glass. But sweetness predominated when I tried pairing it with dinner (chicken) so I had to give it up for the meal.
