2008 Pinot Gris »SJ«

Complex fruit flavours of ripe pears and melons underlined with a mineralic spiciness reflecting the terroir character of the vineyard. Fullbodied and intense on the palate. A very long and creamy aftertaste with smoky nuances.

The fruits are from our oldest vineyard from the Bischoffinger Steinbuck (over 40 years old) with volcanic soil. Only a strict vineyard management ensures to vinify a wine of extraordinary quality. We strictly reduce the crop to one grape per shoot. Perfect ripe grapes were hand-picked and sorted. A whole cluster pressing gently removed the juice from the skins and seeds, preserving the fresh and vivid fruit flavors. 50% was fermented in stainless steel, 25% in new oak and 25% in used oak. A long aging on the lees intensified the elegant and mellow taste.
