flipflop Wines – Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, and Reisling

flipflop wines: to each, their own
ABOUT:
With flipflop wines, we have embraced the movement toward individualistic expression, instead of manufacturing wines into some cookie-cutter style that’s all the rage. Our goal is to craft expressive, well-balanced wines that evoke just what the grapes inside intended, without being over-wrought or over-explained, and that can be enjoyed at any occasion.
David Georges, Vintner

While working at an organic vegetable farm in the Mt. Shasta region of California, David discovered the art of grape growing. After planting a small vineyard on the farm, he was fascinated with wine, from managing the vineyard to tasting the fruits of his labor. Inspired to learn more, David attended the University of California at Davis first to study viticulture, and then added winemaking coursework as well. David honed his winemaking skills at well-known California wineries including Artesa and Davis Bynum.

In 2009, David began working on the wines that would become the inaugural vintage of flipflop. His goal is to stay true to each wine’s varietal character, and to make great tasting wines that don’t break the bank.

MY THOUGHTS:
I was super excited to review flipflop Wines to see what all the buzz was about! We received 3 random bottles of wine the Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, and Reisling! The Hubby and I absolutely LOVED the Pinot Grigio the taste was fresh, and crisp with no after taste. I would (and will) definitely purchase the Pinot Grigio after trying it. Next my future sister in law~ T and I tried the Reisling. I was nervous initially trying the Reisling because I did not want it to be too sweet… and it wasn’t!! The taste is smooth and light, with just a hint of sweetness! T really liked the Reisling and ended up taking the rest of the bottle home! Finally we tried the Pinot Noir. The Hubby really enjoyed the “abundance of taste” and clean finish (not after taste). The Pinot Noir for me was a little too spicy but I prefer white wines, and if I drink red then it is usually a Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. All in all the three wines that we received gets a thumbs up from us (especially the Pinot Grigio)! We would definitely purchase these wines for us and as gifts for others.
