Off-dry but not cloyingly sweet. Fleshy ripe peach and pear fruit. Delicious!

Pinot Gris food pairings: spicy shrimp, calamari dishes.

Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:

Floral nose with a hint of spice. Textbook Alsacian pinot gris mouthfeel: full and fleshy, slightly and pleasantly offdry. Juicy and sweet orchard white-fleshed fruit with a touch of honey, cantaloup and mild spice. Great for spicy Asian dishes, firm cheeses, pâtés and grilled white fish served with a melon salsa (follow me at sommeliertom.com).
A fine example of the off-dry style of Pinot Gris the Alsatians have been perfecting over 20+ years. Aromas of pear, spring flowers, cinnamon and ginger dominate this off-dry wine. Tremendous structure with lots of ripe fruit and a core of acidity to refresh. Try this winner. Source: Vintages Panel
