Ziereisen 2014 Grauer Burgunder (Baden)
Many producers have cottoned on to the predisposition of Pinot Gris to élevage in oak, but few manage the art as deftly as Hanspeter Ziereisen. There is a tenderness and vivacity to this wine that are simply elusive to most of its practitioners. The faintest hint of residual sweetness (3 grammes) imbues it with a delicious hint of voluptuousness that falls well short of the obvious. It offers us yet another individual expression of this most recalcitrant of grapes, that seems so happy in Baden

Notes from the Producer: The grape Pinot Gris was picked by hand and fermented in the large traditional wooden container with grapevine vineyard yeasts. A 15-month maturation on the yeast followed. In the perfume fully ripe pears with a subtle flint note carried by a fresh mineral acidity.
