While it’s made from the same grape as the French Pinot Gris, this Northern Italian inspired Pinot Grigio is the less serious sibling who’s more fun to hang out with. It has the classic flavours of apples and pears (the fruit, not the Cockney slang) with a slight spicy finish. Team it with an equally spicy dish. Or friend…

Pale salmon in colour (it’s just not PC to call it flesh tone), this wine has lovely florally, spicy and um… cherry-y aromas. Light and tangy, crisp and dry, it’s perfect served cold, like revenge… with fresh prawns and oysters. Or porridge. Hey, don’t knock it till you try it.
