This Pinot Gris is planted on clay-schist ground and has very deep roots. Hand harvest. A pneumatic press gently extracts the juice but none of the bitterness from the seeds and stems. Stainless steel fermentation at cooler temperatures. Unfined and gently filtered.
Michel Nartz is a family winery established in the picturesque and medieval village of Dambach-la-Ville. The family possess five sustainably farmed hectares divided into multiple small parcels all around the village of Dambach-la-Ville, but also in in the nearby villages of Scherwiller and Châtenois. They are very proud to have vineyards located in the heart of the Grand Cru Frankstein, one of the 51 Grand Crus in Alsace which has a particular granitic soil that gives an intense minerality to the wine. Today, Gaby & Michel Nartz, have decided to give the reins of the wine-making to Michel’s daughter, Laurence.
