Low and earthy on the nose with floral- and spice-driven aromatics. Noticeably sweet on entry, this is soft, rich and broad in the mouth, lush even. Honey-tinged pear and apricot fruit on the palate turn spicy on the back end. The finish is very clean here, more apple peel than fruit and a bit short, but the finale returns with a nice spice note. This is very much in the Alsatian style. 86pts


User Reviews for Kramer Vineyards Pinot Gris Kimberley S Reserve

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were harvested by hand and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice settled overnight, then was racked to neutral oak and stainless steel barrels for primary fermentation. After fermentation was complete, the wine aged on the lees for 10 months with some stirring. This wine partially completed malolactic and was finished with a touch of residual sugar.

Tasting Notes:

The flinty, fruity nose has aromas of apple, melon, and pear, with hints of honeysuckle. The texture of this wine is strikingly weighty and smooth for a Pinot Gris. There's more fruitiness on the palate, with apricot, white peach, and hints of citrus, butterscotch, and a lingering, succulent finish.
