Anne de K, Late Harvest Pinot Gris 2009, Cave Kientzheim-Kaysersberg, Alsace, France
Tasting Note: If you have yet to enjoy the pleasure that is late harvest pinot gris, this classic Alsatian example layered with development will impress.
Deep-intensity gold in color with some hints of amber, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of dried golden apple, caramel, apricot stone fruit, pear, marmalade, brioche and dried blossom.
On the palate the medium-sweet, full-bodied, late-harvest pinot gris has medium-plus-intensity, dried-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a long finish.
The elixir is complex, creamy in texture and generous.
Don’t sleep on pinot gris in its many varied forms.
Bottle Note: 100% Handpicked grapes. Sustainable wine-growing.
