Reviews and Ratings

L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This wine is pale yellow, light bodied, has a pronounced nose, is off dry and medium plus acidity. Aromas of sweet lemon, apple, and pear, with some minerality. It is a fruity soft wine, with sweet citrus and apple tastes; an easy drinking summer wine. The grape is Grauburgunder: german Pinot gris. Full disclosure; I have a dachshund. This wine was quite acceptable with peat smoked salmon.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pinot Gris is known as Grauburgunder in Germany which might make for a pretty fun dinner party factoid. This wine is light and approachable, definitely a crowd pleaser. Aromas of lemon and pear with a slight floral hint. Light bodied, medium+ acidity, some bright citrus notes, and a clean, crisp finish. Enjoy with light seafood dishes and would also be a great apperitif or party wine.
