Reasonable expression of a Pinot Gris varietal. Crisp, medium-dry. Very juicy.

Smoky green melon rind & quince aromas precede mouth-filling flavors of citrus and green apple, viscous, wet stone and steely with good acid and a moderately long finish. Salads, anyone? Safeway has this wine for less than $9. A steal!!

Great wine, hard wine to find in Australia, expect to pay $25-30 for any vintage year but well worth it. And you will not find it at safeway/dan murphys for $9 a bottle! (thats about what Schlumberger gets for it & safeway here would not stock it ever) Its imported exlusivley and in limited amounts by mezzaine wine...

    This dry style of Pinot Gris has a rich character, which allows the spice to come through strongly — the acidity lingering behind. Flavors of tropical fruits are allied to the smooth, ripe finish.

    WS: 92Pts-The nose is open with autumn fruits flavors (quince, baked apples) Airing reveals honeyed and crystallized notes. The onset in the mouth is ample but remains fresh. In the middle mouth, a little bit of roundness delicately supported by the acidity of the wine.

    Finely knit, with a vibrancy to the refined acidity that focuses the flavors of ripe peach, pear, guava and kumquat. Silky in texture, with a core of smoky minerality that pushes through on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2022.

    The "Princes Abbés" were the first to sell the wine from Guebwiller and because they took care of the vineyard for one thousand years , Schlumberger pays tribute to them in naming their AOC range Princes Abbés . Originally named Tokay d’Alsace, then Tokay Pinot Gris, the name Pinot Gris was finally established in 2007. Grapes are sourced primarily from vineyards with full southern exposure in Schimberg in the valley of Guebwiller, on a volcanic subsoil. The wine matured on the lees for up to 8 months. Wine Spectator scored it 92 points saying “Finely knit, with a vibrancy to the refined acidity that focuses the flavors of ripe peach, pear, guava and kumquat. Silky in texture, with a core of smoky minerality that pushes through on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2022."

    Hints of smoke, lemon curd and fresh forest floor add layers of complexity to the flavors of white peach, pink grapefruit and spiced orange peel in this elegant, well-cut white, which offers fine focus and a silky texture, with a tangy, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2019.
