Pinot Gris (Grauer Burgunder)

Pinot Gris belongs to the family of the burgundy grape varieties. The grape is known all over the world under different names. It is a white variety, though the colour of the skins is “red coloured”. Since the 1990s the wines taste more fresh and dry. For this wine style you have to pick the grapes earlier and to take care to pick only sane berries. Pinot Gris is perfect to match with food. The wines are full of extract, of higher alcohol level and have a moderate acidty.
