About Adina Vineyard's New Pinot Gris

Posted : 12-Oct-2014
Category : Wine

Pinot Gris grapes were first planted in the Adina vineyard  in 1985.

Adina Pinot Gris has a light strawberry hue and has a refreshing mouth feel. It exhibits a perfume of citrus, apricot and pears, the palate is beautifully balanced with fruit sweets and a citrus finish.

"Italy's most popular white wine is produced from the Pinot Grigio (or Pinot Gris) grape varietal. This wine hails from the northeast region of Veneto and Friuli. A light, crisp white wine that is intended to be consumed early on.

Flavour Profile

This wine's flavours can range from melon to pear and some even offer a subtle tropical or citrus fruit, often there is a honey or smoky flavour component as well. As for color, it is typically a pale, straw-like yellow with some golden hues thrown in. However, depending on the season and winemaking approach, the colour can be from a clear to light red/crimson. The texture of a Pinot Gris is worth noting, as it has very smooth, almost silk-like overtones that leave an impression on the palate.

Food Pairing

Pinot Gris pairs nicely with seafood, light pastas and cheese cracker combinations. Since this wine is fairly acidic itself, avoid pairing with foods that have high acid contents, like citrus fruits or tomato-based recipes." "wine.about.com"
