Pinot Grigio / Pinot Gris

The Italian synonym of Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio's differing production and terroir render the taste lighter and more summery, producing terrific dry and food-friendly wines. The grape is picked early to maintain fresh acidity.

It is thought that this variety is an offspring vine of Burgundy's Pinot Noir; as implied by the name, Pinot Grigio has more subtle flavourings than its black ancestor.

Key Regions

Italy (Friuli, the Veneto and Alto Adige).

Synonyms

Pinot Gris (see Pinot Gris for explanation of this style).

Flavour and Character

Pinot Grigio tends to produce fresh and crisp dry white wine of good acidity. It is often described as having flint and steel characters, and needs drinking in its infancy. It is well suited to light pasta dishes and seafood and is a lighter wine than Pinot Gris. Rosé Pinot Grigio is not a conventional wine, so common characters for the style are yet to be identified.

Please note that confusion over the grape’s name, especially in new wine regions, means the wrong name can be used to describe the wine style. Reading a bottle of tasting notes and winemaking practices is the best way to identify the wine style.
