Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: The grape can be grown locally because it ripens early. Its acidity drops off early, very soon after ripening, giving it a creamy sourdough character. This sourdough/pretzel character is unique to Pinot Gris. This Pinot Gris is dry, broad, slightly yeasty and citrusy.

Varietal Definition
Pinot Grigio/Gris:
Pinkish-white variety producing a very crisp white wine. Grown in Oregon, the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, and more and more in California, it shows promise for other cool climates. Also known as Tokay d'Alsace in France, Rulander in Germany, and Pinot Grigio in Italy.
