Succulent and singing with spiced pear and apple on the nose. The palate has exciting concentration, feels sweet and rich with tropical fruit, bright acid, grippy and long.
Reviews & Scores
Deep straw-yellow. Fresh mango, iodine and ripe apple pie aromas on the slightly exotic nose. Then firm-edged and penetrating in the mouth, showing lovely richness but also a light touch to the exotic fruit and grapefruit flavors, thanks to bright lemony acidity. A nicely weightless Pinot Gris with a long, tight back end. There is some residual sweetness but you’d never guess its residual sugar content (28 g/l) due to its bright balancing acidity. This wine’s high acidity is explained in part by the fact that Bursin takes no chances at harvest time: she is always one of the first to harvest Pinot Gris (a thin-skinned variety) on the Zinnkoepflé. “I hate it when it starts to smell and taste of mushrooms,” she told me.
