The low acidity of this white varietal helps produce rich, lightly perfumed wines that are often more colourful than other whites. The best ones have delicious pear and spice-cake flavours.
Wines made from the Pinot Grigio vary greatly and are dependent on the region and wine making style they are from.
Alsatian Pinot gris for example, are medium to full bodied wines with a rich, somewhat floral bouquet. They tend to be more spicy in comparison with other Pinot's from Italy, which tend to be fruit driven.
