Bright, clear yellow-green straw hue, abundant aromas of yellow melon, yellow apple & pear with a hint of mineral; on the palate generous wash of crisp yellow pear and citrus with integrated wet stone and white flowers over a moderately long, balanced finish. Nice alternative to Chardonnay!

I purchase this bottle for around $15 so it appears to be less expensive in Southwest Florida. Sparr bottles everything he ferments well so it's a good value here. There is just a hint of that sweet honey you get from the grapes in this part of Europe --I also get a subtle saffron essence in the Pinot Gris from Alsace...I know it's really weird. There is a very pleasant effusion on the palate after a swallow that is wonderful. I think Sparr's Pinot Gris goes well with saurkraut that has been cooked a long time with a garlic type sausage, raisins and mushrooms. It is excellent with freshwater fish but not a salt water fish. It's also good with turkey and most cheeses. This is a really decent wine for the price and pleases most everyone including many who don't like the Rhineland and Austrian wines.

Pierre Sparr Pinot Gris Reserve Alsace 2005 375ML Half Bottle



<p>This wine is a golden green color with crisp yet delicate bubbles that don&rsquo;t have too much bite. It has flavors herbs, citrus, and minerals, which combine in a balanced, creamy texture to give a refreshingly clean, dry finish. Perfect as an aperitif and served with shellfish.&nbsp;</p>
