The good folks over at Snooth have started a new program called the ‘Global Tasting Initiative.’ Each month a specific wine varietal will be selected for wine drinkers to taste and tweet about. For the entire month of August, wine lovers are saluting Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris. To see which Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris wines people are sipping and talking about on Twitter, follow the #GTIPinotGrigio hash-tag. Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are the same grape variety. Stylistically, the grape is capable of producing a fairly wide range of wines depending on where it’s grown.
Attems 2010 Pinot Grigio
The top two wine producing regions for Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris are Italy and France. In Italy, namely the northeastern regions, where it’s called Pinot Grigio, the wines produced are typically crisp, bright, and refreshing. This is the type of light-bodied white wine you want in your glass on a warm summer day. In Alsace, France, where it’s called Pinot Gris, the wines generally offer a richer mouth-feel and more body, while retaining good food-friendly acidity, generous fruit flavors, and lovely aromatics.
