The 2017 Sonnenglanz Pinot Gris Grand Cru is extremely animating on the nose with lots of fresh fruit reminiscent of citrus, orange, quince and honeydew melon. The soil is quite homogeneous, the subsoil consists only of Tertiary conglomerate of the limestones of the Rhine Graben and interstratified marls from the Eo-oligocene era, forming a rather heavy, well-structured and very stony limestone soil.

Location information
On the north-western periphery, on an elevated terrace of 220 to 270 metres, just outside the village boundaries, lies the idyllic Sonnenglanz vineyard. The location favours an exceptionally mild microclimate with minimal rainfall. The homogeneous subsoil is an accumulation of the Tertiary conglomerate of limestones from the Rhine Graben, intermixed with marly sub-layers from the Eo-oligocene. This results in a remarkably firm, well-structured and exceptionally stony limestone soil.

It presents itself in a light golden yellow with a play of green reflections.

Fragrance profile
The great 2017 Sonnenglanz Pinot Gris Grand Cru unfolds a lively spectrum of aromas on the nose. The potpourri of fresh fruit notes is reminiscent of citrus, orange, quince and honeydew melon. The bouquet lends it a stimulatingly fresh presence alongside the expressive ginger and floral notes.

Taste profile
This Pinot Gris is characterised by a harmonious balance of juiciness, creaminess and freshness, which is infused with a targeted minerality. The exotic nuances intensify on the tongue and the fine acidity provides liveliness and animating drinkability. This wine goes hand in hand with strong dishes and offers the perfect culinary interaction.

Alternatively, here are some food pairings: A goat's cheese roll in puff pastry on glazed fennel, lobster with grilled honeydew melon and coriander or crispy roast duck with orange-ginger sauce and green peas.
