Pinot Grigio is a wonderfully ambiguous member of the Pinot grape family. Other members include Pinot Noir, the revered red-wine grape of Burgundy, and Pinot Blanc, the lesser known white-wine variety that is widely planted around the globe. Pinot Grigio is seemingly torn between it cousins, producing grape bunches that have a touch of red colour and a mix of lighter and darker berries.
The wine first became popular in Italy but is now enjoyed around the world!
A light-bodied, dry, crisp and refreshing wine with a touch of coppery pink color. Aromas and flavours of green apple, pear, white peach, pink grapefruit, cantaloupe and tangerine. Its vibrant acidity will make your mouth water! Best Serving Temperatures 6°to 9° C
The grapes were sourced from two vineyards located in Niagara-on-the-Lake with some from vines more than 20 years old. A little skin contact during the process of harvesting, crushing and pressing, developed a light pinkish-amber tone in the wine. The juice was fermented strictly in stainless steel to allow the full expression of the fruit character and retention of the brisk refreshing palate.
Food Pairing Notes
A great match with many classic summer dishes. On the BBQ: shrimp, white fish, chicken, even pork tenderloin and grilled vegetable stacks. Or grilled flatbread or thin-crust pizza with pesto. Fresh, summer salads such as Greek salad with feta cheese.
