Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 vintage was a banner year for Alsatian Pinot Gris and it shows in this wine, which is true to its Alsatian style and terrior. Generous tree fruit flavors like apples, figs, and peaches are evident on the full, opulent palate. A nicely structured backbone leads to a silky and refreshing finish.
My Notes:

The Helfrich family, which has been crafting wines in Alsace for six generations, is committed to promoting the reputation of Alsace as a region which produces world class wines of great flavor and complexity. The Helfrich family is leading the Alsatian Renaissance with grapes from centuries old vineyards and employ modern wine making methods with a minimalist touch to allow the terroir to accentuate these fine wines.
