Pinot Grigio continues to gain popularity throughout the U.S. Known as Pinot Gris in France, the grapes are named for their characteristic grayish color, but they actually take on a pink and even purple hue as they ripen. Pinot Grigio is a refreshing white with plenty of fruit character. Our Hogue Pinot Grigio has up front aromas of pear, orange peel, cedar, apple, and lemon curd. Flavors are similar: rich and soft, with pear, quince and a slight herbalness. Pair this wine with light pasta dishes, pasta salads and trout amandine.
