Matra Hill Pinot Grigio, Nagyréde Estate 70cl
Pinot Grigio, or Pinot Gris as it is known in Alsace, is closely related to Pinot Noir and its pinky-grey berries can look more like black grapes than white. In fact, it has enough colour to make some really savoury, sappy rosés in the north of Italy. The family resemblance is more than skin-deep, however. After tasting one of the fleshiest Alsace examples, you may think that it looks like a white wine but tastes more like a red. The Nagyréde Estate in Hungary produces a delightful medium bodied wine with rather more fruit than many examples from Northern Italy.
A grape normally associated with Italy, this Hungarian Pinot Grigio gives its Italian cousins a serious run for the money with citrussy notes backed up by floral aromas and good, ultra refreshing fruit.
