Bestheim, Anne de K Pinot Gris 2017, Alsace, France
Tasting Note: A pinot gris from Alsace with beautiful ripe fruit and concentration that presents the grape in its signature form.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic, pronounced-intensity nose of ripe golden apple, pear, pineapple, lime-citrus, white peach, orange zest and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied pinot gris, has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a long, orchard-fruit-filled finish.
Complex fruit notes abound along the entire length of the taste.
A definite pickup for pinot gris aficionados like me.
