Pfalz: Pinot Gris vom Kalkstein 2018

This is just the kind of under-the-radar, great value white that makes German wines the 'open secret' of the UK wine industry. Pure Pinot Gris (Grauer Burgunder), produced on limestone soils just north of Alsace, this crisp white makes for an ideal aperitif or partner to shellfish or Thai cuisine.

Tasting Notes

Pfalz (aka Palatinate) is sandwiched between the Haardt mountains (a continuation of Alsace's Vosges) and the Rhine. It is Germany's second largest wine-producing region with over 60 different grape varieties planted. Grauer Burgunder (Pinot Gris) flourishes here - white production dominates red on a 2 to 1 basis in this warm, dry climate.
