With enticing aromas of acacia flowers, lime, tangerine and hints of apricots and almonds, KRIS Pinot Grigio is bold but clean and refreshing on the palate, and offers a long finish tinged with orange blossom and honey.
Made entirely from Pinot Grigio grown in the Veneto regions of northeast Italy in a mixture of silt and clay soils, this wine is fermented in stainless steel to preserve its wholesome freshness and fruitiness. Fermented for 6 - 10 days at 16 - 20 degrees Celsius.

The Kris' recognizable green hand label was designed by Italian artist Riccardo Schweizer (1925-2004).
Consistently on-point, this vintage doles out stewed yellow apples, ripe pear and marzipan with honey, white raisins, lemon meringue and acacia blossoms. It is weighty in the mouth; bitter almond and lemon zest flavours prevail. Lengthy and complex overall, with good balance and pithy, mouthwatering finish.
Pair: A rustic antipasti platter, a simple Aglio e Olio (pasta with garlic, olive oil and chili flakes) or white meats.See detailed press review
