Pinot Gris is a white wine grape variety. 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). The wines produced from this grape vary in colour from a deep golden yellow to copper and even a light shade of pink. The clone of Pinot Gris grown inItaly is known as Pinot Grigio. Wines made from the Pinot Gris vary greatly and are dependent on the region and wine making style they are from. Alsatian Pinot Gris are medium to full bodied wines with a rich, somewhat floral bouquet. The Pinot Grigio style of Italy is a light-bodied, often lean wine that is light in colour with sometimes spritzy flavors that can be crisp and acidic.
