Yet another of that triumverate’s great wines. If you thought all Pinot Grigio was thin cheap and Italian, think again! This is rich, with pure, clean fruit and a lovely vibrant zestiness. Highly recommended.
Pinot Gris has a slightly pinkish flesh which can go darker in very hot years. 2016 was just one such year and you will notice a slightly pink hue to the wine. More industrial producers might “intervene” to strip the colour out, but at Verus they rightly celebrate the variations of the vintages!
