Cavit Pinot Grigio 2022 Review – Straightforward White Wine

We have to admit we have a bit of a personal bias against Pinot Grigio.

The wine made from this grape, stylistically speaking at least, is just a bit too simple for our liking. Throw on that the Pinot Gris counterpart here is often just a bit more interesting, mainly because of where it is grown (Alsace, for example), means we generally just don't buy many bottles labeled Pinot Grigio outside of a few instances.

But, as always, we love trying name-brand bottles to see what they're all about, and we did just that with Cavit Pinot Grigio from Valdadige, Italy.

Although this one hit us with what we expected for a flavor profile (and dare we say, pretty spot on at that), this grape and style is still just not for us.

Domaine Weinbach Clos des Capucins Pinot Gris 2019 – A Gem

As far as grape varietals are concerned, I have to admit that Pinot Gris / Pinot Grigio is not one I typically seek out. This relatively mild grape has a reputation for being somewhat simple as far as character is concerned.

I had always known that Alsace was said to produce the most intense and robust Pinot Gris, and when I stumbled upon a bottle of Domaine Weinbach's Clos des Capucins Pinot Gris, I knew I had to pick it up to try.

Arguably my favorite winery in Alsace that has only ever had wines of the highest quality? I can get behind that and didn't look back.

As it turns out, Domaine Weinbach's Pinot Gris is just as spectacular as all of their other bottles, and is helping change my mind on this oft-overlooked grape.

Anthony Road Pinot Gris 2018 Review – Goes Down Smooth

Although Pinot Gris/Grigio tends to make relatively straight-forward and easy-drinking wines, we appreciate that international winemakers tend to label their wines according to the style they're mimicking- specifically Pinot Gris if it is like those from France (Alsace) and Pinot Grigio from Italy.

For Anthony Road's Pinot Gris, we think it hits the mark on the French style for sure.

Supernatural Wine Co Spook Light 2019 Review – Decant This One

We've been getting into naturally made wines more and more recently, thanks to joining clubs like Mysa Wine Club that specialize in this production style. As part of that, we've been receiving bottles that are a bit unconventional, and the Supernatural Wine Co Spook Light Pinot Gris 2019 was certainly that.

Why? Well, this one was fermented with the skins on to produce an orange wine!
