Mouth-filling yet refreshing and crisp.
Pinot Gris is a grape that creates wine of varying styles from densely fruity and sweet to bone-dry and earthy. New Zealand examples will often been a little on the oily side with great fruit purity and have a little bit of a fleshy mouthfeel.
Pinot Gris has been around a while, possibly even since the middle ages. It is thought to be a mutant clone of Pinot Noir with 'Gris' referencing the grayish-blue fruit this grape possesses. Early on in production Pinot Gris was only really found in Alsace, Northern Italy and Germany but nowadays it's grown across the world and continuing to grow in popularity.
If there's a bit of spice, try with Asian. If it's fruit driven try with meat dishes that have a sweet element such as a Lamb and apricot tagine.
