Pinot Gris "Spiegelberg" Grosses Gewachs (GG / Grand Cru), Weingut Heitlinger, Baden, 2012
This is a flagship Pinot Gris of Weingut Heitlinger, made with grapes from the steepest south-facing pitches of the Grand Cru vineyard Tiefenbacher Spiegelberg.
This is a luscious and powerful wine which reminds one of the top Crus of Burgundy. It offers a wide range of minerality, spiciness, and very ripe fruit of pear, red apple, honey, with nuances of walnut and high quality oak. Fermented to extreme dryness (<2 g/l residual sugar), this is powerful but elegant, with nice acidities and structure making it a good companion to white meat dishes like roast chicken, fish, or soft cheeses. - DECO tasting team
