Product Code: WWTB0023


Founded in 1954, Hunawihr is rather small for a Co-operative, with 110 members and 200 hectares of vineyard. Grapes for the Pinot Gris Réserve are grown in vineyards running along the South and South-East facing hillside slopes of Hunawihr, at an altitude of 250-320m. The vineyards cover an area of 36 hectares, over a calcareous clay soil. The average age of the vines is 25 years old.

Slow, cool fermentation followed by four months in stainless steel tanks to settle.. No malolactic fermentation. 

Tasting Note:

A deep pale gold; a lightly smoky nose with elegant hints of pear and fresh apricot.
The finish is long and elegant with nice aromas of smoke, apricot and a touch of caramel.
