Two names from the same grape variety depending on which country. In France, it's called Pinot Gris, while in Italy, the variety is known as Pinot Grigio. Gris is the French word for grey, as grigio is grey in Italian. The Pinot Gris style is rich, more textured and full-bodied as grapes are picked later allowing a riper style while Grigio is lighter bodied, lower in alcohol, drier, crisper and less uncomplicated. In Australia, there are no style rules and both Gris or Grigio can range from elegant, crisp and zesty to more textured but one thing is common is the outstanding quality. The collection features 3 bottles each of 4 of the best examples of Pinot Gris / Grigio in one single box.

Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris 2022
Mostly fermented cool in tanks; 25% is fermented with high solids and ambient yeasts in used puncheons. It’s arcane magic, giving pinot gris substance and flavour before a long, lemony, bright finish. It goes straight onto my wine list for Chinese restaurants. Date: Nov 2022; Drink to: 2024; Price: $22.00; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 95 Points & Top 100 Wines for 2022; James Halliday Wine Companion

Tread Softly Yarra Valley Pinot Gris 2021
This is beautifully styled and elegantly composed with ripe pear, fig, apricot and citrus peel aromas on the nose. The palate is equally appealing, displaying lovely focus and flow. Elegantly flavoursome and lingering with juicy fruit flavours. At its best: now to 2025. Date Tasted: Oct 2021; Price: $22.00; Rating: 93 Points; Wine Orbit

Tar & Roses Pinot Grigio 2023
An early grigio adopter, Tar & Roses promotes the grape's natural blush colour. No filtration here. Fragrant in stone fruit, red apple and citrus scents with a flash of spiced pear. Subtle but highly effective. Hits the mark on the palate both flavour and texture-wise, with a super clean, brisk finish of bright acidity. 

Delatite Pinot Gris 2022
Biodynamically grown, hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-yeast fermentation. The Upper Goulburn offers the perfect setting for pinot gris, the cool climate releasing the grape's inner spice and intensity of flavour perfectly. The lifted aromas on this wine rise like a good perfume with apple blossom, intense honeysuckle, lime cordial, apple and honeyed spice. Clean acidity aids the delivery of concentrated fruit, spiced apple, lemon drop and nougat flavours. A pastille-like brightness lasts on the finish. Date: Jan 2023; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $30.00; Drink by: 2029; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; Jeni Port; James Halliday Wine Companion
