Comments from Wine Buyer Steve
I am a big fan of Pinot Grigio, it is the only white wine I drink at home on a regular basis. I find them a cross between a Sauvignon Blanc and a Chardonnay. There is some good mouth feel and texture together with good hints of tropical fruit. This 2020 Yarra Valley Outré Pinot Grigio is an awesome wine of this variety from Victoria. A great everyday wine and is sensational value at $13.00 per bottle.

What is Pinot Grigio?
Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are becoming increasingly popular wines in Australia. You could argue that they are no longer alternative varieties but have become mainstream. This white wine variety is being used in most Australian wine regions, but it is especially suitable in the cooler regions, such as the Mornington Peninsula, Adelaide Hills, Yarra Valley or Tasmania.
In Europe Pinot grigio is widely planted in France, Italy, Germany and Austria, as well as in dozens of other countries from Canada to Romania to Switzerland to New Zealand Given the inherent variation of this variety and its geographic dispersion it is hardly surprising that a wide range of wine styles are produced from it. In Alsace under the name of Tokay d’Alsace, it produces a rich, almost oily wine. In Northern Italy the Pinot Grigio’s are light and even spritzig. Under the name of Rulander in Germany it produces wines somewhat similar to white Burgundies
Pinot Grigio has attracted serious interest in Australia only over the past two decades.
