Helfrich Pinot Gris Alsace Aoc 2007
Pinot Gris is revered in Alsace as a super-rich wine that can be partnered with many different foods. These grapes come from the Couronne d'Or (Golden Crown), an association of local vineyards and winemakers that run through the middle of Alsace. The vineyards are sloped with a South / South East exposure, while the soil is mostly calcareous and thin. The vines are dry farmed and trained upwards for maximum exposure to the sun. Our Alsatian Pinot Gris is very true to its style and terroir. Starting rich and full, its mouthfeel is quite opulent and round. One can detect a slightly smoky flavor with a touch of grass. It has a pleasant and long finish.
This pale-yellow pinot gris has a bouquet of honey, a hint of smoke and aromas of ripe pear, apple and mineral notes. The taste is rich, lush and well-balanced, with flavors of apple, peach, and pear. A modest sweet-tart spice on the palate before a long smooth, creamy finish. I paid $9.95 recently.

Pretty yellow-gold hue. A touch of smoke ties together aromas of ripe apricot, pear and minerals. Pleasing, sweet-tart flavors of peach and apple display a banana-like texture. Balanced, fresh, cleansing close.
