A light and fruity, mineral-edged Burgundy-style wine which is entirely typical for the Baden wine region. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and stored in wooden barrels before bottling. This method ensures the wine retains its fruit and flavour characteristics, whilst allowing the wine to harmonise in barrel.
The grapes for this wine were grown on the loess and pumice-rich volcanic soils of the Stigler Kaiserstühl vineyard which also benefits from a warm micro-climate (indeed, this is renowned as the warmest vineyard in the whole of Germany).
The Grauburgunder is also known as Pinot Grigio in international circles. Whilst many (probably too many) Italian examples show little flavour, fruit or length and are meant solely for the mass market, Baden’s Grauburgunder styles really do deliver in terms of flavour, quality, style and attraction. One of the region’s ‘Burgundy’ style grapes, the unique climatic conditions of the area allow these wines to flourish, and this wine is a fine example of the winemaker’s art.
