Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris

 

I’ve recently become a huge fan of this white wine also known as Pinot Grigio. The grape is considered the ‘white’ pinot noir and is often used to lighten up that red variety. The grape loses it’s acidity as it ripens but will produce a very high level of sweetness with elements of lemon, apple, pear, vanilla, almond, butter and oak in it’s flavors and aromas.

Because of its light sweet flavor, Pinot Gris is best paired with light fish, chicken, veal, ham and light pasta dishes, ravioli and antipasti. Avoid serving it with red meats, duck, salmon, tuna and rich cream sauces.
