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.
A richer, riper style of Gris, with spiced pear and oak notes on the nose, and a subtle lactic character. The palate is rich and textural, with a lovely creamy mouthfeel and hints of apricot biscotti. The finish is long and elegant. Definitely a food wine. Highly Recommended.
