PinotG – crisp or luscious?


You may remember the laudable attempt by members of the International Riesling Federation – Riesling producers based mainly but not exclusively in North America – to help consumers work out how sweet their wines are likely to taste using the Riesling Taste Profile.

Now a similar idea has been launched in Australia to help wine drinkers know in advance the style they can expect from Pinot Gris (as it is known in Alsace and sometimes beyond) or Pinot Grigio (Italy and elsewhere): the PinotG Style Spectrum™, ranging from crisp at one end to luscious at the other.
