Withh two weeks of skin maceration, this Grauer Burgunder (Pinot Gris) is an orange wine; spicy, dense, and multi-dimensional, it offers aromas of honeydew melon, nuts, and delicate flowers and a palate that delivers opulent fruit and a creamy texture.
Located in the quiet little town of Kettenheim in the Rheinhessen, the Schlossmuhlenhof winery has been in the Michel family for more than 150 years; it was bought by Johann Michel in 1846, who laid the foundations for its long history of winemaking that continues to this day with young Nicholas Michel.
