Albert Mann Alsace Grand Cru Pinot Gris ‘Hengst’ 2011

Pinot Gris from France - Alsace
Review Date : 17-Mar-2014
Bright straw yellow colour with light golden hues. The bouquet is full, broad and weighty with deep aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits with complex layers of lees and minerally reduction interest. Nuances of apricots and burnished toffee elements emerge in the glass. Medium-dry to taste, rich and lush flavours of honey, ripe yellow stonefruits, apricots and toffee form a dense and plush palate. The fruit is complexed by botrytis characters, and palate carried by structure with some phenolic extract and alcoholic power. The acidity is soft and a rounded mouthfeel completes the balance. This has a degree of decadence and is bordering over the top. Drink over 4-5+ years. From the ‘Hengst’ grand cru at Kientzheim on limestone, marl and sandstone. 14.0% alc. 18.5+/20 Mar 2014 RRP $63.99
