Karl Johner Pinot Gris "Sj" 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Established in 1985 after working ten years in the english wine industry, Karl Heinz Johner and his wife Irene founded a little Weingut (Estate) in their home village "Bischoffingen" in the Kaiserstuhl. His focus was on the Burgundian styles - wines full of structure and pure elegance. Despite having to overcome problems relating to winemaking in the Kaiserstuhl and German wine laws the young Weingut soon established himself as a pioneer of a new German winestyle recognised as being of an International class. Today "Weingut Karl H Johner" is considered one of the best Estates in Germany and is recognised amongst most wine experts. The Pinot Blanc 'SJ' has great varietal expression, with very subtle Citrus and ripe pineapple flavours. It has a great creamy structure, well balanced acidity, and is round and luscious combined with great mineralic terroir expression and a subtle oak finish.
