Pinot Gris(gio): Yea or nay?
Yesterday we had a run down of some recently released Pinot Gris. While there were some truly lovely wines in that selection, Pinot Gris remains a divisive wine. Many typical consumers love the way the wine fits comfortably between the richness of Chardonnay and the acid driven dinginess of Sauvignon Blanc, and without Sauvy’s often off putting herbaceous character.
In my hour of weakness, while considering whether to simply let that sleeping dog lay or to give it a figurative kick, I turned to my fellow wine writers to see what they had to say on the subject. Not surprisingly they were divided! Some love the wine, some hated it! Find out why as we ask our wine writing friends.

    This Morgan guy really hasn't tasted the better versions from northern Italy. They can be dry, mineral with good depth and finesse in the acidity. Try the Lageder
    Porer Süditrol Alto Adige Pinot Grigio. I had the 2012. Bet the yea is on its way...

    Huge Pinot Grigio/Gris fan. Versatile, food friendly not grassy or overbearing. Character of a chardonnay with a tropical influence. Some of my favorites Passaggio, Elk Cove, 10Span, Holman Ranch, Owen Roe. Cheers Dan G from Dan's Cellar Sips

  • I enjoy the Pinto Grigio having lived in Northern Italy for 3 years and while there tasted many of the northern varieties of wine. I recently bought the LaCrema Pino which was a tad disappointing!

    I found a great Northern Italy Alto Adige pinot grigio by accident - someone brought it to my house for a party. Now I buy it by the case. St Michael-Eppan Alto Adige Pinot Grigio. I like dry whites and this one is not as typically dry as most PG's.
