Trius Hillebrand Winery Pinot Grigio 2011
V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada
A light, refreshing and mouth-watering white from winemaker Craig MacDonald. Lovely lifted aromas of lime and lemon zest makes this a great aperitif. Great concentration yet it's not heavy in the slightest. The wine was cool- fermented in stainless steel to preserve its fresh fruit purity. Pair with salads and seafood. Alcohol: 12.7%  Sweetness: Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2013‐2015  Splendid Salad Wine  Best Value White Wine  Price: $15.95 Score: 89/100

San Raffaele Monte Tabor Pinot Grigio 2009
I.G.T., Delle Venezie, Veneto, Italy
Vintages Wine Panel: This organic wine has free sulphur of only 6 mg/L. Producing wines since 1925, the family began to explore organic farming practices in 1980 and all their vineyards have been fully organic since 1984. Their 2009 Pinot Grigio offers aromas of candied citrus. Dry, with a light body and good acidity, it is fresh and toasty with tones of soft ripe orchard and citrus fruit, and a medium-long finish. A very nice Pinot Grigio. Enjoy as a refreshing sipper. My note: A simple and mild Pinot Grigio with subtle notes of white melon. Pinot Grigio food pairings: summer salads. Alcohol: 12.5%  Sweetness: Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2009‐2013  Outstanding Organic Wine  Price: $14.95 Score: 86/100

Pinot Grigio

Pinot Gris, called Pinot Grigio in Italy, is a white variant-clone of the red grape Pinot Noir. The Italian region of Friuli produces the best Pinot Grigio in a crisp, refreshing style. Other Italian regions produce it too but it can be over-cropped and taste insipid.

Benchmark Pinot Gris is best known from Alsace, France, where it’s known as Tokay d'Alsace (unrelated to Hungarian Tokay), and produces a full-bodied wine. In Oregon, vintners are shifting away from Chardonnay to produce a lively style of Pinot Gris.

Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio have delicate floral and citrus aromas such as lemon, lime, pear, melon and green apple. When oaked, they have notes of vanilla, almond, toast and smoke. Depending on how they’re made, they can be light- to medium-bodied with a tangy acidity or be more full-bodied with a rich, voluptuous texture.

They’re usually made in a bone-dry style, unoaked and unblended. The wine generally has a light straw color that may have a pink or salmon tinge. Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio make terrific aperitifs before a meal.
