Pinot Grigio, another varietal from the Pinot family is the Italian name for Pinot Gris and thus is essentially the same grape variety. But although both these names point to the same fruit, the difference in the style of wines they produce is significantly distinct. Pinot Grigio wines are most commonly described as crisp, dry and light weighted. This style is obtained by harvesting the fruit early so that it can retain as much of the fresh acidity as it can because the natural acidic state of this variety is already pretty low. Stainless steel tanks are brought into use for storage and fermentation to help retain the zest and freshness of the fruit. These light-bodied wines are full of fruity flavours of white peach, tart green apple and citrus on the palate with floral blossom aromatics on the nose. Pair them with pastas, pizzas or poultry dishes to enjoy a scrumptious meal.
