Pinot Grigio is a well-known white wine grape variety that is light, fresh and delightfully easy to drink.
It’s thought to be closely related to the red wine grape, Pinot Noir. Not only do they share a similar name, but Pinot Grigio grapes are also grey-blue in colour, which is uncommon for white wine styles.
Of course, once the grapes have been fermented and turned into wine, the pale yellow shade that we associate with this illustrious drink comes shining through.
Is Pinot Grigio Dry?
On the whole, this tremendous type of wine is generally dry in taste; be sure to savour each refreshing sip after pouring yourself a glass.
What few drinkers realise is that Pinot Grigio also goes by many other names, including Pinot Gris and Grauburgunder. So, depending on where you are in the world, you may come across these titles when shopping for a bottle of this sublime style of white.
Geography aside, you can tell a little more about the flavour of each beverage by its given name, too. While Pinot Grigio is usually crisp and zingy, Pinot Gris is often fruitier and sometimes even sweet.
