Fernand Engel Pinot Gris Reserve

Winemaking Process: The Pinot Gris grapes were hand-harvested from 3 plots located in Bergheim, North of Colmar. The vineyard was managed according to the mode of Organic Agriculture, controlled by Ecocert. The grapes were direct pneumatic pressed with the whole bunch, cold settled, and fermented using natural yeast at cool temperatures. The wine was aged on lees for 6 to 8 months, underwent late clarification, and very fine filtration before bottling. Tasting Notes: This Pinot Gris has a beautiful gold-yellow colour with amber reflections. On the nose, it has an open and young aroma with a smoky and peppery characteristic, followed by exotic fruits, vanilla, liquorice, and caramel. On the palate, there is a light carbonic perception due to its youth, and is a heady, heavy, and fleshy wine with an intensive vanilla, liquorice, and ripe fruit bouquet. It is powerful and round, making for a luxurious drinking experience. Food Pairings: This wine is suitable as an aperitif, with white meat dishes like poultry in mushroom sauce. It can also pair well with dessert, making it a very gastronomic wine. Serving Temperature: 10°C
