Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Fruity, bright orange/citrus and green apple aromas with rich honeydew melon and tangy, lemony overtones and balanced acidity that gives it a very refreshing and crisp quality, bursting with bright, juicy fruit flavors.
Winemaker Notes
Pinot gris is a white wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. Thought to be a mutant clone of the Pinot noir grape, it normally has a grayish-blue fruit, accounting for its name (gris meaning "grey" in French) but the grape can have a brownish pink to black and even white appearance. The word pinot, which comes from the word meaning "pine cone" in French, could have been given to it because the grapes grow in small pine cone-shaped clusters. The wines produced from this grape also vary in colour from a deep golden yellow to copper and even a light shade of pink, and it is one of the more popular grapes for orange wine. The clone of Pinot gris grown in Italy is known as Pinot grigio.
Food Pairing Notes
It's perfect as a pre-dinner sipper or with fresh salads containing prosciutto, ripe cantaloupe and mild cheeses. Also great with all types of seafood, picnics and tailgate parties!

Other Notes
Pinot gris has been known from the Middle Ages in the Burgundy region, where it was probably called Fromenteau. It spread from Burgundy, along with Pinot noir, arriving in Switzerland by 1300. The grape was reportedly a favorite of the Emperor Charles IV, who had cuttings imported to Hungary by Cistercian monks: the brothers planted the vines on the slopes of Badacsony bordering Lake Balaton in 1375. The vine soon after developed the name Szürkebarát meaning "grey monk." In 1711, a German merchant, named Johann Seger Ruland (re)discovered a grape growing wild in the fields of the Palatinate. The subsequent wine he produced became known as Ruländer and the vine was later discovered to be Pinot gris.

For a breezy afternoon garden party sip, or to pair with light cheeses or refreshing salads of melon, of greens with citrus, or of seafood, this wine stands alone for me because its combination of ripe and soft melon flavors is peerless. I have a stock of light crisp wines for just this type of pairing or occasion, and this Pinot Grigio is my new favorite.
