Grauburgunder from Pinot Gris
There are few things more popular in Germany than Pinot Blanc, but Grauburgunder—known in France as Pinot Gris and in Italy as Pinot Grigio—may fit the bill. The variety, which is primarily produced in a dry profile here, has stoked the Burgundy-hype in Germany with its rich range of aromas, intense structure, and spiciness. What a Pinot Gris is best drunk with depends not least on its profile. The fresh and approachable Nahesteiner Grauburgunder is a wonderful paring with appetizers, poultry, and fish. Our Pinot Gris Réserve, by contrast, is more mature and shines brightest with richer fare such as hearty fish and meat dishes.
