True to the the region, this Alsatian Pinot Gris offers fruity aromas of apricot, honey and beeswax. The palate is medium dry, light spice excites the back palate while clean, fresh fruit flavour and a light textured mouthfeel contribute to a fresh, moreish wine.
From the Winery
Limited yields. Guyot pruning, with 5 500 vines per ha on average. Sustainable farming practices to preserve the richness of our terroirs. Gentle pressing of the grapes. Fermentation between 18 and 22℃.
Delicious for aperitif, this Pinot Gris usually pairs with white meats like porc and lacquered meats (such as the Peking duck). In Alsace, it is traditionally enjoyed with Baeckeoffe (a delicious stew composed of meat, potatoes, and carrots).
