Pinot Grigio’s spiritual home is Europe. France’s Alsace region (where it is known as Pinot Gris) produces delicious textured wines and in Italy it is a true superstar. Italian Pinot Grigios tend to be light-bodied and lean wines with great acidity and crisp citrus fruit flavours. It is an increasingly popular variety in Australia; here, whether it is labelled Gris or Grigio is often an indicator of style.
"What a terrific pinot gris with its pale copper hue, crunchy fresh, and poached, pears flecked with powdered ginger, vanilla and cardamom. Loads of creamy texture and lemon curd but sprightly acidity keeps it buoyant given the complexity and depth of flavour." Halliday Wine Companion
