DRINK OF THE WEEK
30th March 2020
Junge Winzel Grauburgunder
Drinker Rating 90
Most of you will know that pinot grigio is also called pinot gris, right? Well here's another super fact to amaze your friends at parties (when we can have parties again) pinot gris/grigio is also known as grauburgunder - doesn't sound as exciting or poetic as pinot grigio does it? That's because this is the German name for it.
This wine from the new range at Lidl is extremely poetic however. Just the look of it is enticing, it has a lovely pinkish hue, it's dry with fresh acidity and has touches of spiced peach on the palate. A really interesting drop, fantastically priced - all we need now is a party!
