Pinot Gris 2017
“Easy drinking at the highest level. Very stimulating.” – Wine Advocate
Kracher’s dry Pinot Gris is brimming with orchard fruit, honeydew melon, white peach, white grape, wild herbs and tropical fruit salad. It’s a truly charming white wine with just the slightest pinch of salt – a character rumoured to come from the evaporation of the local lakes during the summer. Pair this food-friendly Austrian beauty with anything your heart desires, or simply drink it chilled on its own, and bask in its glory.
Austrian Alois Kracher was one of the finest winemakers the world has ever produced. The recipient of a perfect 100 point score from Robert Parker, named Winemaker of the Year countless times, and he was even called on to help Manfred Krankl with his cult wines at Sine Qua Non and Jorge Ordóñez with their venture in Málaga. All of which is an incredible achievement for a specialist in sweet wine – a category that many in the wine industry do not take seriously enough. Outlived by his father who founded the estate, sadly ‘Luis’ died at the age of just 48, but his legacy and skill live on through his son Gerhard. Weinlaubenof Kracher is located near the Hungarian border on the shore of Lake Neusiedl in an area of Burgenland called Seewinkel. The nearby shallow waters help to promote the spread of noble rot required to make the finest sweet wines.£2.93 per 100.00ml
