Baden is Germany's most southerly wine making region, it can be seen across the border from the French wine region, Alsace. This region suits the pinot varieties, both red and white. Grauer Burgunder is the German name for Pinot Gris. This particular wine is made from very old vines, where the roots are approixmately 30 metres deep, bring back up layers of minerals and nutrients, which add richness and complexity to the grapes. It has a lovely combination of ripe apple flavours and apricots. It is supple, medium rich, with a long finish and a streak of zesty acidity.
