There is no definitive history / linage for the grape. ‘Welschriegoingg’ literally means 'Romanic Riesling' and indeed this is the common name throughout the regions in which it is grown. Unusually it is quite the Central European specialist.
100% Pinot Gris fermented and matured in stainless steel tanks, 7 months ageing time Pale green-yellow. Fine fresh apple fruit, honey melon and a hint of wild herbs. On the palate juicy, elegant texture, white tropical fruit aromas, discreet acidity.
European Winery of The Year for 2016: Wine Enthusiast Magazine ''The pear and stone fruit on the nose almost have floral hints. The palate also has an unusual tang of passion fruit. The finish is dry, vivid and fresh.'' Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
''Crunchy textured, shows cherry cola, cranberry juice flavours, crisp texture, ultra fresh feeling, good dusting of spice, peppery finish and corkscrew of tannins in tow. Great drinking here.'' 92 Points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
''Subtle notes of green pear have an appetizing, creamy edge on the nose. The palate is marked by a wonderful lemon zestiness and a light juicy and fruity, but dry body—very moreish indeed.'' Anne Krebiehl, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
