As is common with many of the Deiss wines, this carries no indication of varietal, just the name of the vineyard, in this case a small parcel between Bergheim and Ribeauvillé. With its sweetness and richness, this has characteristics of noble rot, but the spiciness of Pinot Gris shows through. There is also great finishing acidity. Imported by New Castle Imports.
