Profile: One of the darkest skinned white varieties, often with a pink/reddish tinge, and colours often range widely within the same bunch. Gris and Grigio are indicate style and origin, with Gris tending to be darker, richer and oilier and Grigio lighter and crisper as a rule. Pinot Gris often tends toward dark golden in colour and can be higher in alcohol and richness. It has soft acidity and with spicy, fragrant aromatics. It will often have a touch of residual sugar, meaning it is great for pairing with spicy Asian cuisine, and in Alsace is regularly made into sweet wine. Pinot Grigio is most synonymous with Northern Italy. The best examples are fresh and fragrant with zesty and floral aromatics and moreish texture.
