Winemaker's Notes

Pinot Gris is revered in Alsace as a super-rich wine that can be partnered with many different foods. These grapes come from the Couronne d'Or (Golden Crown), an association of local vineyards and winemakers that run through the middle of Alsace. The vineyards are sloped with a South / South East exposure, while the soil is mostly calcareous and thin. The vines are dry farmed and trained upwards for maximum exposure to the sun.

Our Alsatian Pinot Gris is very true to its style and terroir. Starting rich and full, its mouthfeel is quite opulent and round. One can detect a slightly smoky flavor with a touch of grass. It has a pleasant and long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Pretty yellow-gold hue. A touch of smoke ties together aromas of ripe apricot, pear and minersals. Pleasing, sweet-tart flavors of peach and apple display a banana-like texture. Balanced, fresh, cleansing close."

Typical of Pinot Gris (French) and Pinot Grigio (Italian). It's sharp and crispy, without some of the unpleasant caustic taste in cheap Pinot Gris. However, like other Pinot Gris, it isnot very rich in flavor. A pretty good choice if you like Pinot Grigio in general.

I thought it was sweet and I'm not a fan of sweet wines.
