About This Wine
Just like its counterpart in Italy (known there as Pinot Grigio), Pinot Gris from Argentina are refreshing, crisp white wines punctuated with notes of citrus, white flowers and herbs. The often highly-aromatic wine with vibrant acidity can also include flavors of peach, tropical fruit and pear.
