Winemaker's Notes

The Pinot Gris Cuvée Romanus is named for Romanus Albrecht, the first winegrower of the Albrecht wine family in 1425. It's 100% Pinot Gris and expresses the rich yet dry power and character of this exceptional varietal. Sweet floral flavors alongside crisp mineral notes make for an elegantly balanced wine. The clay/limestone soil gives the wine a creamy, velvety texture with a long finish.

Enjoy this wine with Cobb & shrimp salads, shellfish, poultry, and Asian inspired dishes. Semi-soft cheeses like Brie and Chevre will also complement it well. Alsatian whites characteristically age well due to their high acidity and lower percentage of alcohol. You can age this wine for another 2-4 years however it's fresh and delicious tasting now!
