2015 Winzergenossenschaff Konigschaffhausen Grauer Burgunder (Pinot Gris) Baden

SKU #1295981

Baden is known for the Pinot varieties: red, white and gray. This Grauer (gray) Burgunder is in a style evoking the good old days of Alsatian Pinot Gris, but before they became so fat and sweet ... and it has a body and presence that its leaner Italian Grigio cousin doesn't achieve. Volcanic soils impart a beautiful minerality to this single-vineyard wine. Fermented in all stainless, with lively butterscotch and hazelnut aromatic notes, richly textured, and dry on the finish. Shows clarity and precision.

This was such an interesting try. Pinot Gris from Germany.. awesome! A beautiful nose of pear, granny smith apples and honey, delicately express themselves when you first approach the wine. Having seen no oak, the wine is bright and minerally with a rich full body. Pineapple and kiwi round out this outstanding wine.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Gris

- Also known as Pinot Gris in France, where it originated as a mutation of Pinot Noir. The berries can vary in color from yellowish to bluish-violet producing wines that range from white to slightly pink. The most successful wines from the grape come from the Collio in Friuli (Northeast Italy), where the wines are light- to medium-bodied, crisp, dry and, because of their high acidity, complementary to the region's foods like speck, Prosciutto di San Daniele and polenta. In Alsace, where the grape takes a back seat to more popular varietals like Gew├╝rztraminer and Riesling, it is generally rich and honeyed. Other successful plantings of Pinot Grigio exist in Austria, Germany, Hungary and Romania, with even smaller amounts planted in British Columbia, Australia, New Zealand and California.
Country:

Germany

- Thanks to a recent string of excellent vintages and to the reemergence of Germany onto the international wine writing scene, this is a country that's hot, hot, hot! Germany is divided into 13 wine Region and produces a very wide variety of wine styles, from incredibly high-acid, dry wines to some of the sweetest, most unctuous concoctions on the planet and even a few surprisingly hearty reds. Most of the highest-quality wines are grown on steep banks along the rivers in these Region. Small vineyards are still mostly hand tended and picked, due to the difficult nature of mechanization on these slopes. White wine production accounts for nearly 80% of the total with Riesling being the most important varietal, though Muller-Thurgau is still more widely planted.
