The master of German Pinot Noir makes a winning Pinot Gris as well! It clocks a modest 12.5% alcohol but the silky-satiny texture and fresh, floral aromatics of this wine are amazing; long skin contact and elevage is the answer. Some vintages show a faint blush (as Pinot Gris often does elsewhere, like Alsace and Oregon). There are some old vines at the estate as well, some approaching 50 years old. This is a serious wine at a very good price from an interesting place. it excels with rich river fish like pike or salmon, crab cakes, cream sauce pastas, seafood salads and many other dishes that like a mdeium-rich, aromatic white.
