Dr Heger 2011 Ihringer Winklerberg Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) Grand Cru Dry

Regular price £35.50

A concentrated, mineralic and savoury bouquet of fully ripe mirabelle plums and starfruit, dried apricots, and finest hints of vanilla and marzipan. The juiciness then leads on to a dense but firmly structured body. The aroma of honeydew melon and yellow plums is backed by a striking spiciness and mild acidity. Warmth, spiciness and fruit characters such as mango, greengage and a creamy nuttiness are evolving towards the long-lasting finish. This Grauburgunder combines a powerful juiciness with a vital and savoury core.

The volcanic soil of this site delivers the minerality that is needed to develop the fruity, intense and complex bouquet.

Food recommendation:
An excellent wine with grilled fish, roast meats and feathered game.  It also pairs perfectly with hearty Mediterranean dishes, mild cheeses, spicy bites, or tapas.
