This Pinot Grigio pours a straw yellow color with green reflexes. It has a tempting bouquet of fresh fruits, ripe Williams pears, herbs – including mint and melissa –, and tea and is spicy and slightly buttery and nutty. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and well-structured with a long and slightly bitter finish.

In 1845 the Benedictines moved Muri in Switzerland to Gries in South Tyrol, where the order took over the Augustinian monastery. In so doing, they inherited a long tradition of wine-growing, which they nurtured in the spirit of a symbiosis of monastery, winery and estate that is still very much in evidence today. The result, in the 21st century, is a range of top-quality wines MURI-GRIES like the Abtei Muri line, which has been produced selected grapes the very best sites since 1989. The MURI-GRIES wine estate comprises 35 hectares of vineyards in excellent locations in and around Bolzano and Appiano.
