The Italian name of Pinot Grigio spans many countries and can vary from an incredibly approachable, soft, easy-drinking wine to something more flavoursome in style. It’s typically light to medium in body, brilliantly food friendly and best drunk young and fresh. You’ll often find quite a punchy acidity about the wine, which is retained by early picking of the grapes.
When making Pinot Gris, grapes are usually left on the vine to ripen fully. The result is a richer wine, fuller in body and of a deep golden colour. It’s often described as having a more floral character than Pinot Grigio.
white peach notes, slight citrus tings and a hint of pear. An element of perfume and light spice round off what is a light, easy-sipping white, while you may also experience additional flavours of honeysuckle, green apple or even grapefruit.
