Pinot Gris Estate is Salwey's flagship wine. A typical and rustic representative of this demanding variety. One of the most important aspect with Pinot Gris is, to pay attention to the right picking date in order to achieve freshness and lightness - which stands for the typical Salwey style. Thanks to its low residual sugar and noticeable tannin structure Pinot Gris goes very well with a lot of different styles of food and a high variety of dishes.
Therefore, it is THE ideal table wine for us.
