Look, don’t knock Gnarly Head until you try it. It may sound… different (and it is), but it can be really enjoyable if you give it a chance. It’s bright and fresh with pleasingly tart citrus notes, and a balanced and crisp aftertaste. What did you think we were talking about? This Californian Pinot Grigio packs big bang-for-the-buck, and pairs well with cured meats, earthy veggies like mushrooms, and spicy foods. Order some take-out and stay in!
