2020 Frey Vineyards Organic Pinot Grigio A very buttery aroma leads to vivid white-pepper, tilled earth and citrus flavors in this full-bodied, smooth-textured US wine. It is good for folks who prefer savory and earthy flavors over simply fruity ones.

The Italian replica of Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio is a white mutation of the Pinot family, sharing its genetic fingerprint with Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc. Most commonly found throughout the northern regions of Italy, Pinot Grigio is strongly associated with light bodied wines with a zestful acidity.

The most searched-for Pinot Grigio wine on our database is the Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio from the Alto Adige of Italy.

From the north of Italy in particular, Pinot Grigio is most commonly described as a lean and crisp dry white with relatively high acidity that adds a spritzy sensation, complemented by aromas of lemon, lime, green apple and blossoms.

This “”everyday”” Grigio Italian style is achieved firstly by harvesting the grapes relatively early. This is done in an attempt to retain as much fresh acidity as possible. Otherwise the variety is naturally quite low in acidity.

To retain freshness and “”zing””, fermentation and storage typically take place in stainless steel tanks. If barrels were used, this would add palate weight and sweet vanilla aromas. This would detract significantly from the clean, simple style, and also raise costs. This type of Pinot Grigio wine is almost always intended for consumption within a year or two of harvest. Extended cellaring is neither required nor advisable.

Northeastern Italy (Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige) is the Pinot Grigio producing heartland. The region exports vast quantities of the wine each year, mostly to the United Kingdom and US.

However, it should be noted that there are also plenty of examples of premium wines from this region. These can achieve a weight and texture comparable to almost any Pinot Gris bottling. The very best wines can get close to the quality of Alsace Grand Cru wines.
