Pinot gris is the name given to pinot grigio grapes left on the vine longer to achieve a more mature, fuller bodied, almost savoury texture to the wine; usually the practice in Alsace and Germany, where it is known as grauburgunder.
The Villa Wolf Pinot Gris Ernst Loosen Pfalz 2017, coming from an ancient estate now under the wing of one of the biggest names in German winemaking, is a great introduction to the style, with long-lasting tropical fruits, some spice and smoke.
