Tasting notes: This Grand Cru Steinert Pinot Gris opens up with
an expressive bouquet of zesty yellow fruits such as pineapple and
mango. Although smooth in texture, the limestone terroir imparts a
fresh and acidic structure which is accentuated by candied notes of
quince and fig on the end palate.
Pairing: The perfect partner for foie gras but you can also try
it with a generously garnished tuna steak or with desserts such as
pineapple fritters or crème brûlée.
Serve between 50 and 54°F.

STEINERT literally refers to the stony nature of the terroir. It
lies opposite the Alsace plain, the Rhine and the Black Forest and
faces towards the rising sun. The hard, homogeneous, dry and
filtering soil sits directly on the oolithic limestone bedrock
which is partially visible on the surface. Oolites are small
spherical grains, shaped like fish eggs that were formed on the
surface of the rocks by marine microfossils.
Wines from the Steinert vineyards are characterized by their
powerful structure combined with a subtle finesse and underlying
