桃红色的灰比诺——这是最正宗的吗?


最原始的灰皮诺真的是桃红色吗?——来自“Decanter提问精选”

 

 
D Morrison St Helens, 问道:一个葡萄酒批发商告诉我最真实、最正宗的灰皮诺(Pinot Grigio)实际上是桃红色的,灰皮诺的白葡萄酒在意大利是一个创新。原因就是,灰比诺有粉红色的外皮。

我总是认为,桃红灰皮诺葡萄酒里添加了一些红葡萄酒,这只是为了商业化的一点小把戏。究竟谁是对的?

葡萄酒大师David Gleave,自由人葡萄酒公司的总经理回答:灰皮诺葡萄的皮肤是红色的(而不是粉色的)。

传统上,灰皮诺酿成的葡萄酒有一种“ramato”(铜)的颜色的葡萄酒,这是来自与葡萄皮的接触。

但我不会说这是最正宗的灰皮诺,相反它是酒庄的一个选择,做出获得更多的风味的葡萄酒,这涉及到浸皮必须从4到24小时。

灰皮诺在20世纪50年代首次瓶装,但直到20世纪80年代才真正开始流行,在那时酿酒技术已经得到改善,以及当时的时尚是非常明确的,轻酒体的白葡萄酒。

结果,“ramato”风格不再流行,即使少数生产商(Specogna,La Fattoria,Livio Felluga)一直坚持了下来。

无论如何,成品灰皮诺葡萄酒中有什么颜色都会通过澄清去除,这也将会去除掉风味。

如今,这两种风格你都可以在市场上发现,虽然“rosato”风格给人感觉更像是一种产品营销胜过它是一种酿酒方法。


 
Is it true that the rosé version came first?

Pink Pinot Grigio – ask Decanter

D Morrison, St Helens, asks: A wine merchant told me that rosé Pinot Grigio is actually the authentic, traditional Pinot Grigio of Italy and that the white is an innovation. The reason given was that Pinot Grigio has pinkish skin.

I always assumed that rosé Pinot Grigio had some red wine added and was just a bit of commercial fakery. Who is right?

David Gleave MW, is managing director of Liberty Wines, replies: Pinot Grigio grapes have a red (not pink) skin.

Traditionally, there were wines that had a ramato (coppery) colour, which was derived from contact with the skins.

But I wouldn’t say this was the authentic Pinot Grigio; it was instead a choice by the winery to obtain more flavour in the wine, something that involved macerating the skins in the must for anything from four to 24 hours.

Pinot Grigio was first bottled in the 1950s, but didn’t really start to become popular until the 1980s, by which time technology had improved and the fashion was for very clear, light white wines.

As a result, the ramato style fell out of fashion, even though a few producers (Specogna, La Fattoria, Livio Felluga) stuck with it.

Whatever colour there was in the finished wines would be removed by fining, which would also remove flavour.

Today, both styles are found in the market, though the rosato style is more a product of marketing than of winemaking method.
