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.
Delicious pinot gris
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.
