WINEMAKING COMMENTS: We only produce the Late Harvest Pinot Gris when the growing season conditions allow us dry, sunny days and cool, dry nights. Made in the typical fresh, crisp French Alsatian style, this wine has nicely balanced natural sugars and long term ageing potential. The grapes are picked at 14.2 Baumé. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks and stopped when acidity, alcohol and sugar are perfectly synchronised.
