Notes from importer, Living Wines:
This is a skin contact (orange) wine made from Pinot Gris and a small amount of Gewurztraminer from the Kaefferkopf Grand Cru vineyard.
Like the maceration Pinot Gris we import from Jean Ginglinger this one is a deep pinky orange colour. The maceration continued for one month which has nicely developed the colour and the tannin structure in this wine. It was matured in steel tanks.
One extra bonus of maceration white wines (which are also called skin contact wines or orange wines) is that they match beautifully with a wide range of foods. In fact, you can drink them right through a meal.
It will improve and soften over two or three days after opening making it a great wine for restaurants to pour by the glass. An additional feature of this bottle is that it has a glass stopper therefore not corked bottles!
