Details

Pinot Gris 'V' Pur Vin Pierre Frick 2018, biodynamic wine, 7 day skin contact, no added sulphites, quite full, round, intense fruits and note of tannin. A new Cuvee from this fantastic biodynamic domain in Alsace. Pinot Gris (also known as Grigio of course , although you wouldn't find this one in a cheap Trattoria for £4 a glass) lends itself very well to skin contact as it has dark skin with lots of pigments and polyphenols which give plenty of flavour, texture and complexity to the final wine. Shorter maceration as in this case means a fresher style with primary fruits such as red cherry, raspberry and red current alongside almonds and a dry slightly tannic savoury character. A fantastic wine and welcome addition to our growing Orange Wine range.

Run by the Frick family, Jean-Pierre, Chantal and their son Thomas, this 12 hectare estate prides itself in clean wines that are undoubtedly Alsatian, made as naturally as possible. They've had Demeter certification since 1990, and since 1999 they have even made some of their cuvees without any addition of sulphites. Their grape parcels are spread out across a 15km area, on several different terroirs, which allows them to produce a variety of Crus and grape varieties, though most are characterised by chalky soils. Their wines are never interfered with, just lightly filtered and bottled with an absolute minimum of sulphur. They are some of the best examples of Alsace wines we've come across - wines of real character and depth.
