Pinot Gris wines

A selection of wines made with the Pinot Gris grape.

Rockburn, Saint Clair and Dopff au Moulin all make great examples of this white wine.

Pinot Gris is often thought of being the same as Pinot Grigio but whilst it is the same grape different methods of production and harvesting will lead to very different flavours. In Alsace for example Pinot Gris will give a spicy full bodied wine, whereas in New Zealand it will be tropical in character with low acidity and higher alcohol levels.

In Italy Pinot Gris or Pinot Grigio is harvested early to preserve the refreshing acidity and cut back on the fruitiness that can come from this grape. This gives a more neutral flavour profile often described as "The blandest thing on the wine list"

Pinot Gris is grown in many countries around the world but seems to thrive in Italy, Alsace, Germany, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. It is a wine that can produce quick gains for the wine maker as it can be harvested, bottled and out for sale within 4-12 weeks after fermantation.
