Aromas of wood smoke and mild Alpine cheese on this wine are intense and likely to be divisive. Those who take the plunge will be rewarded with a zingy, refreshing sip redolent of Granny Smith apples. For a Pinot Gris from the region, this wine has big body, but it’s kept in check by pulsing acidity. That smoky note returns on the finish, but now with a juicy, tangy punch.
This self-confidently atypical pinot gris has astonishing acidity that’s got the intensity of a lightning strike. Tons of pineapple and toast character, but also gigantic, lemony freshness at the exceptionally bright finish. We find this amazing. From biodynamically grown grapes.
Racy acidity and a pronounced vein of smoky minerality drive this powerful, chiseled white. It’s medium- to full-bodied and mouthwatering, offering a lovely range of Mandarin orange, pineapple and crunchy pear fruit and a subtle thread of aromatic honeycomb, ground cardamom and chopped almond notes.
With great yellow fruit, ranging from ripe peach to super ripe mango, this dry pinot gris manages to stay just the right side of opulence, thanks to its vibrant acidity, giving it almost riesling-like elegance, linearity and minerality at the driving finish, which is truly remarkable for this grape. From biodynamically grown grapes.
The 2018 Pinot Gris Rotenberg is bright and taut in the glass, with striking dimension and tons of complexity. Lemon confit, marzipan, dried flowers and lightly honeyed notes offer a striking interplay of richness and freshness. More than anything else, the Rotenberg is marked by a feeling of structure and drive, with underlying veins of saline intensity that bring tension to the finish.
