Mainly Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer with a touch of Riesling and Muscat. Peach, honeysuckle, summer flowers, and strawberry on the nose. Blood orange, quince, lemon zest, and candied cherry on the palate. A tingly, aromatic delight.
Grapes are lovingly hand-harvested, gently pressed, and macerated on the skins for 14 days. The juice is then fermented with indigenous yeast and zero sulfur in inox vessels for 11-12 months. Bottled the following fall with zero additions of sulfur. Completely unfined and unfiltered.
Pirouettes is an ever-growing association of Organic and Biodynamic grape growers that natural wine Alsatian leader, Christian Binner, mentors to make affordable and delicious natural wines.
