This wine has a lemon hue with noticeable tearing.
.
.
The nose offers stone fruit, such as peach and apricot, with some green and yellow apple, star fruit, wet stone, chalk, and delicate honeysuckle, beeswax and honeyed notes.
.
.
On the palate, it’s slightly off-dry, medium-plus bodied, with medium-plus acidity. ABV 13.5%. Vintage 2015. Lingering honeyed notes on the palate.
.
.
Easygoing and very drinkable. Nice expression of an Alsatian Pinot Gris. Enjoyed it even more as it evolved with some time to breathe.

Really much better than I anticipated. Floral and honeyed ginger notes. Very well rounded with the surprising sweetness perfectly balanced by bright Alsastian acidity.

Smells of Spicy fresh grated ginger, tangelo purée. The spices smell helps to prepare the pallete for the candied tones of Buddha palm and loquat. Heavier body, that releases a bit more citrus before it decides to linger on for quite a bit..Lots of residual sugar here, certainly a warm and giving vintage. Yum. Alsace has so many wonderful wines to explore, if they weren't so damn expensive.
young, yet hey, I may get hit by a wine delivery truck tomorrow..

Too sweet in its own but excellent with spicy green curry.
