Information on geology

The Tuniberg is a quarry clod of Jurassic limestone that was "left hanging" during the formation of the Upper Rhine Graben. Similar rocks are only found again on the Swiss border and in the Swiss Jura. The entire Tuniberg is covered with glacial loess, although the thickness in the southern part is less than in the central and northern parts, so that the vines in the steeper southern part root right into the Jurassic limestone. In the rest, the typical fertile loess-loam soils prevail.

Information on the expansion

The grapes are harvested by hand, destemmed and pressed very slowly and gently so that the run-off must and phenols oxidise. The must is pre-clarified overnight by gravity and then fermented spontaneously in stainless steel. The wine remains on full lees without sulphur additions until bottling. In spring it is drawn off, roughly filtered once and bottled with about 30-40mg total sulphur. Apart from a little SO2, the wine is bottled without any additives or fining.

Color

Bright golden yellow.

Nose

A typical Pinot Gris pours out of the glass, quince, apple, orange, walnut, some ivy, leaves, undergrowth and beetroot. Striking, spicy, with a delicate smoky note, a mouthful of wine announces itself.

Palate

Juicy and with a lot of melting, Klaus Vorgrimmler's Pinot Gris runs over the tongue. Lots of fruit combines with spice and a salty note. The long finish is earthy and profound, an excellent food companion, especially with dishes with earthy influences and also with dark meat or game.
