At Fire & Ice Wine Lovers Wednesday, we offer a curated selection of wines that’ll grab just about anyone's attention. Though we offer a wide variety, today we're going to deep dive into Acrobat Pinot Gris.
This refreshing white wine has crisp, clean citrus flavors with strong hints of Asian pear and apple. With its dry smooth finish and high acidity, this wine is the perfect complement to lighter dishes like fish and seafood. To get a better understanding of how this well-balanced wine is made, let’s take a look back to when it was first made.
Pinot Gris is a white-wine grape that originated in Burgundy but is now found in all wine regions of the world. Gris being French for “gray” refers to the distinct dark colors of the Pinot Gris grapes that the wine is named after. Like all wines, this white wine can differ in taste depending on the region it’s from and the way it's made. There are 3 common styles to this wine: French Pinot Gris, Italian Pinot Grigio, and Sweet Alsatian. Despite all being made from the same grape, each of these wines are different in flavor, acidity, and sweetness. Pinot Gris specifically differs from its counterparts with its distinct dry, rich finish with notes of spice and citrus.
