Info about the situation

Just outside the village, to the northwest, at the extreme edge of the foothills, lies the Sonnenglanz vineyard, at an altitude of 220 to 270 metres to the southeast. It has a very favourable microclimate with particularly low rainfall (hardly more than 500 mm per year). The soil is fairly homogeneous, the subsoil consisting only of Tertiary conglomerate of the limestones of the Rhine Graben and interstratified marls from the Eo-oligocene era, forming a fairly heavy, well-structured and very stony limestone soil.


Light golden yellow with green reflections.


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 ginger and floral notes are beguiling and add to the lively and fresh attack.


A wonderful combination of juiciness, creaminess and freshness, infused with pointed minerality. The exotic impression is enhanced on the tongue and the acidity adds liveliness. A Pinot Gris which stimulates the drinking flow and which can be combined simply perfectly with intensive cuisine!
