Description for the AOC Alsace Pinot Auxerrois ...
The winery dates to 1836 and is located near the Village of Bergheim, Haut-Rhin, in the Alsace wine region. The region is a narrow strip of land, running North to South along the river Rhine and with the Vosges Mountains to the west. The grapes were harvested from the clay and limestone, hillsides around the little village and transported to the winery for fermentation.
Tasting Note from Fairley's Wines | 2016 ...
The resulting Classic Pinot Blanc appears pale yellow with zippy citrus, somewhat floral and an array of tropical fruit. The palate is lively and light with lemon zest, white flowers and touches of melon, finishing clean and restraint with lasting citrus fruits. Do not over chill and would be best served with fish and various white meats.
