Description

Ontario Pinot Grigios are characteristically lively with a lingering finish due to ample hours of sunshine throughout the seasons. The Pinot Grigio grape grown in Ontario is typically an early ripening grape (an evolution of the Pinot Noir grape), allowing for the longer development of delicate floral and honey-like characteristics.

Pinot Grigio grapes are often harvested earlier to retain the fresh acidity, giving the wine its fresher and lighter style. Ontario Pinot Grigios are usually described as “vibrant”, pale straw in color and dry. This grape varietal can be best enjoyed in warmer weather as a refreshing beverage.

The Italian Pinot Grigio we currently carry in our Cru International portfolio is a more complex, old-world style of Pinot Grigio, whereas our new Ontario grape offering is a more easy-going, light, and refreshing Pinot Grigio characteristic of a new world style Pinot Grigio.

Food Pairings

The delicate aromas and crisp acidity of this light and refreshing Pinot Grigio compliments the flavors of herbed butter seared scallops, feta and grilled asparagus pizza, or even a pasta al olio (olive oil, chili, garlic).
