Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss Grand Cru Moenchberg Pinot Gris 2017
The Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss produces biodynamic wines in Alsace and in the Rhone Valley. The winery has been certified since 1989. Today, Kreydenweiss farms a little less than 30 acres of vineyards in Alsace, which includes portions of 3 Grand Cru vineyards: Kastelberg, Moenchberg, and Weibelsberg. Riesling, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc vines dominate the plantings, but Kreydenweiss has other varieties planted, including a small plot of Chardonnay.
A sweet floral/candy nose will hit you right away and immediately make you forget your drinking Pinot Gris. The palate has hints of sour fruit (watermelon/lemon). The finish is long and has a mineral or stone texture. The sweetness on the finish lingers across the palate. Medium bodied.
