Pinot Noir / Pinot Gris
Tout Rouge Litre 2022
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris
Producer: Domaine Rietsch
Region: Mittelbergheim, Alsace, France
Vegan friendly wine
Wild Scale: 4/5
Winemaking: Organic Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris grapes were harvested by hand. 14 day whole bunch maceration. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in stainless steel. Bottled with no filtration or fining and just a small amount of sulphur.
This Wine: Jean-Pierre's litre of juice returns after a 2021 hiatus. We are very happy about this as it's always a winner. Light in body but great concentration of fresh and candied cherry flavours with a hint of earthiness. The great acidity balances everything perfectly.
Notes on the Winemaker: Jean-Pierre Rietsch is a natural winemaker in the village of Mittelbergheim, Alsace. His estate has been in the family for seven generations but wasn't used for vine cultivation until the 1970s. He has garnered a reputation as a legend in this area and when you try his wines, you'll see why. From rich and complex Riesling to traditional method sparkling wine and skin contact cuvées, his wide range has something for everyone.
