Gruss Alsace Grand Cru Pinot Gris ‘Pfersigberg’ 2011

Pinot Gris from France - Alsace
Review Date : 04-Jun-2013
Hand-picked fruit from vines planted in 1990, from 0.26 ha in the ‘Pfersigberg’ grand cru, WBP and fermented to 14.4% alc. and 54 g/L rs., the wine undergoing batonnage. Full, bright, moderately deep straw-yellow with golden hues. The nose is very full, broad, dense and weighty with aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and exotic tropical fruits, honey and nuances of creaming soda. Medium-sweet to taste, this has rich, opulent and luscious flavours of exotic tropical fruits, honey, and creaming soda. The acidity is low and contributes a fat, rounded mouthfeel and unctuousness. The sweetness is prominent, the sugar carrying the palate to a rich and lush, moderately sustained finish. This is an opulent, medium-sweet Pinot Gris with rounded textures. Match with pate, foie gras, pork belly and semi-hard cheeses over the next 5+ years. 165 dozen made. 18.0+/20 Mar 2013 RRP $44.00
