Evolution d’Octobre


From a forty year old parcel planted over sandstone high in the hills of Reichsfeld, this is mostly Pinot Gris, with the balance being made up of Pinot Blanc and Noir. The former was pressed directly to vats, whilst the other varieties were left to infuse as whole bunches for a fortnight. The grapes were then pressed and the juice returned to vats until the following spring. A beautiful shade of pink in the glass, it offers tart cranberries, bitter blood orange and cleansing minerals. Compact and streamlined, a hint of tannin holds everything in place.
