Pinot Grigio is quickly becoming one of the most popular white wines in Australia. It comes from the same grape family as Pinot Gris. The two white wines sound awfully similar, so is there a difference?
The different names for the grape refer to the location in which they are grown. Pinot Grigio is commonly grown in Italy. Grigio is Italian for “grey” and is known for being a crisp wine. The wine has strong popularity in the wine regions of Veneto and Friuli.
Pinot Gris is grown in France and Gris is French for “grey”. Pinot Gris is a richer, full-bodied wine with a silk texture.
Popular flavours and aromas found in both Grigio and Gris include pear, strawberry, apple, hay, honey, brioche and bread.
