This Pinot Gris comes from 37 year old vines planted on a heavy and deep clay soil with a bit of limestone. The clay brings softness and texture to the Pinot Gris and the deep soil provides lengths 20% of this cuvee is aged in old neutral oak with the balance in stainless steel.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a watery hue. Lifted ripe pear, Jonathan apple, honeysuckle and quince aromas emerge from the glass with hints of ginger spice also evident. Rich, texturally full and concentrated the palate is engulfed with luscious ripe pear, apple and honeysuckle flavours. Some refreshing quince and ginger spice elements sit in the background. Dry to off dry finish with a long lush and voluminous aftertaste. A classically styled Alsace Pinot Gris.
