There is a lot of confusion about variety names. German Grauburgunder is much closer to Pinot Gris in style, yet in the UK it is often sold as Pinot Grigio. Admittedly, many of these wines are plonk, which in a way brings them closer to the many boring Pinot Grigios available. As long as people remember that German -burgunder wine will be a Pinot I am quite happy. In Germany, on the other hand, I cannot really remember having seen any Grauburgunder labelled as Pinot Gris, but then I rarely buy wine in German shops these days... I love all -burgunders, red or white!
