The Oddbins Take

We like to think of Pinot Grigio as the grape equivalent of the Brontë siblings. For there are distinct offshoots, each with their own name and style. Just how Emily wrote the wonderful Wuthering Heights, while Charlotte gave the world the era defining Jane Eyre and Anne... who... umm... she probably made the other two tea at some point, so she contributed to literature in her own way?


It's the same with Pinot Grigio (except for the obvious 3rd wheel) which is named as such in Northern Italy and is typically light, citric and incredibly easy drinking. Whereas in Alsace and some New World regions, the grape goes by Pinot Gris and is often much more floral and textual. Then we get to the best kept secret of the 3; Grauburgunder. Grown in Germany, wines such as this from Gysler, are some of the finest expressions in the world. With both beautiful finesse and elegance, while presenting a palate that has crisp notes of green apple, preserved lemon, dried acacia and baking spices. Given half the chance, we reckon this wine could knock out some sublime 19th century literature!
