-8-Like Pinot Noir, its bluish-grey mutant clone, Pinots Gris (Grey) originated in Burgundy, and followed Pinot Noir around the world. As a result, in the last 20 years an increasing number of winemakers in New Zealand, Australia, and Oregon are making outstanding Pinot Gris.Pinot Gris’s distinctive characteristics and appeal are all about balance: as the grapes mature the sugar content tends to increase while the acid decreases. Depending on the timing of picking and how much sugar remains at fermentation, the styles of this wine can range from light and acidic, to somewhat sweet, through to a rich, full-bodied wine. It is also a superb food wine that complements a wide range of cuisines. In Pinot Gris, a world of delicious discovery awaits.VC Spring recommendation: Pinot Gris from Oregon & NZCODE10535Excellent with rich dishesRRP ¥3,980Origin: Nelson, New ZealandAlc. 13.5% Residual sugar 5.5 g/LSingle vineyard Pinot Gris from the clay and gravel soils of the Moutere Hills, the cool growing season in 2016 produced fruit with lower sugars and juicy acidity. 20% was fermented in neutral oak to add complexity, and carefully handled to retain elegance and subtlety.
