Coming home on Friday evening, making a tasty fish soup and pondering over what to open. Wait, is it not a single bottle of a Pinot Gris laying around? Well, it seems to be.
2006 Pinot Gris, Schlossgut Diel
Isn´t Grauer Burgunder a more beautiful name? It says that on the back label but on the front label Pinot Gris boast its name. Anyway, a big, extrovert meets you when you put your nose in the glass, with fine notes of sweet flowers, candle grease, dried peaches and candied lemon. Some maturity. Very good. Round and yummy.
The taste is broad and tight with notes of apricots, pine apple juice, smoke, candle grease and blood orange peel. The finish is long, warm and mouth filling. The acidity is on the low side of things but I really like it all the same. Went perfectly with the fish soup. Drinking perfectly now.
