cultivated and vinified by Vincent Gross, Domaine Gross, Gueberschwihr

Vineyard: 0.5 ha of 18yo vines on limestone and sandstone, organic since 2011

Varieties: Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sylvaner

Cellar: Grapes are hand-harvested and sorted in the vineyards, destemmed, and fermented on skins for 25 days, resulting in orange wine. Elevage on the fine lees for 8 months in foudre. Zero addition of sulfur, unfined and unfiltered.

Personality: “I loved making this skinsy Alsatian amber,” confesses the winemaker. Judging from the speed with which this wine sells out every time we get some, everybody else loves drinking it.
