Pinot Gris Auslese

Made from selected very ripe bunches or grapes, typically semi-sweet or sweet.

Grape variety: Pinot Gris
The white wine grape variety Pinot Gris, also known as Gray Burgundy, is thought to be a mutant clone of the Blue Burgundy (Pinot Noir) grape. During harvest it is not uncommon to find white and blue grapes on the same bunch; even particular grapes might be multicoloured. As the most opulent Austrian wine, the Pinot Gris has much substance with a fine varietal bouquet.

Tasting: red golden, honey flavors, harmony between sweetness and acidity with a long finsih.
