Pinot Gris - Pinot Grigio


One and the same grape but very different styles depending on its country and region of provenance. In Italy and often the New World it is known as Pinot Grigio and it is prized for its dry freshness. In Alsace it was, until recently, labelled Tokay and and in Switzerland's Valais it is called Malvoisie.

Characteristics: As Pinot Grigio it is often racy with highish levels of acidity, usually fairly light in character though occasionally fuller and more aromatic examples are made in the Alto Adige. It is one of three major varietals in Alsace, alongside Riesling and Gewürztraminer, where its wines range from full-coloured, aromatic dry to late-harvest sweeter whites.

Where is it found? Italy, particularly in the North, Alsace, Oregon, California, Australia, Switzerland (Malvoisie) and Germany where it is often called Ruländer.

Wines associated: Germany, Alscae, Italy, New World

Food matches: For dry: Aperitif, freshwater fish, charcuterie. For Sweet: desserts particularly Tarte Tatin or blue cheeses.

Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
