About the Wine
Pinot Gris (Grigio) grapes are actually pinkish grey in colour, from which they derive their name. Gris means grey in French and Grigio grey in Italian. Wines made from this variety can range in style from light and zesty to rich and full bodied.
The Billy Button Pinot Gris positions itself somewhere in the middle of these styles and is a culmination of the two, offering fetching aromatics and crisp acid, paired with a textured round palate.
The coolness of the Alpine Valleys lends itself to good acid retention and you could say this wine has the aromatic style of a Grigio and the textural qualities of a Gris on the palate.
