South Tyrolean Pinot grigio

Pinot grigio has aromas of pears and meadow flowers and pairs particularly well with oysters.

Pinot grigio is a white wine grape variety, first mentioned in the 14th century. Its fruits are medium-sized with a rather thin skin, red and lightly greyish in colour. Pinot grigio is an early-budding grape and therefore the risk of damage from springtime frost is rather high. It requires a deep, rich, fresh and humid soil, a warm climate and a lot of sunshine.

The wines produced from Pinot grigio are straw yellow in colour. Their alcohol content can reach rather high levels. Full-bodied and a bit viscous, Pinot grigio is often served as a dessert wine. Its aroma is flowery, its flavour very smooth and pleasant. Aged Pinot grigio can have a bouquet of honey and nuts. It pairs particularly well with mushrooms, fish and sea food. Sometimes it is also served as an aperitif.

Serving temperature: 11 - 13°C
