Pinot Gris
Definition:a Pinot variety

Pinot Gris is the link connecting Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc, and was probably brought to Austria during the 14th Century. The grapes are susceptible to higher sugar levels and if very ripe, the colour of the grapes is a deep, golden yellow colour with light red reflections. The Pinot Gris  wines are quite versatile, ranging from clean table wine (e.g. Pinot Grigio) to a more international style with malolactic characters and oak barrel maturation, to high quality dessert wines.
