Pinot Grigio tasting, Video Rating review of a Top Selling
Pinot Grigio, Fish Eye 2009
Pinot Grigio wines have blown up in sales in the
past few years, especially the Italian wines on
the low end like Ecco Domani, Cavit and Casarsa.
The Terms Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are
synonymous, “Gris” is the french for grey
and grigio the same in Italian.
The Pinot Gris grape is an offshoot of Pinot
Noir, named Gris (Grey) for it’s Grey Colors.
In the Italian and American versions of this
wine it has dominant Flavors of Lemon,
Melons and a bit of pepper.
Okay, the facts on this 2009 Fish Eye Pinot Grigio
