Bercher 2013 Grauburgunder Jechtinger
The loess-rich soils of the village of Jechtingen produce a more delicate style of wine that we thought offered a charming counterpoint to some of the other Pinots Gris in the selection. The impression is tender but well-braced, with a billowing quality to the fruit and a deliciously sweet-fruited yet spicy aftertaste. It is however a real trocken wine!

Notes from the Producer: Grown on volcanic soil in the village of Jechtingen, which is located next to Burkheim on the western rimm of the Kaiserstuhl. Fermented and aged partialy in traditional oak casks, this Grauburgunder is lush yet fruit-driven with saline properties.
