Vintage tasted 2007 Grapes Pinot Gris

Overview Yes, Pinot Gris is the same grape as Pinot Grigio, but the choice of the Francophone name often signals a more restrained style. This one is certainly true to type, with floral aromas and great balance. It comes from the Pfalz region of Germany (as does the Pölka Dot Riesling), though it lacks some of the acidity that makes many German wines so exciting.

Nose It’s faint (we’d say restrained) and floral.

Mouth It’s almost prickly in the mouth, with peach and lemon flavors and mouthwatering acid.
