About This Wine

Germany’s Nahe region is named after the river that traverses the valleys of the forested Hunsruck Hills.

It is a peaceful landscape of vineyards, orchards and meadows interspersed with cliffs and striking geological formations. Although the Nahe is one of the smaller German wine regions, its extraordinary range of soil types accommodates the production of quite diverse wines from relatively few grape varieties.

One of those varieties is Pinot Gris, and the 2016 Dominik Meyer “Kirschrother Lump” is a textbook cool-climate Pinot Gris from a single Nahe vineyard. Pinot Gris has become quite popular in Germany in recent years, and it’s a perfect pairing partner for many dishes.

After a mild winter, cold spring and very humid summer, the Dominik Meyer vineyard experienced a beautifully warm late summer and dry autumn with perfect harvest conditions. As a result, the 2016 Pinot Gris is a fruit-driven, very accessible wine with excellent structure and balance.

About Pinot Gris

In northeast Italy it makes a light, crisp and neutral wine. In Alsace it can be a delicately perfumed, honey-flavored wine, either dry or sweet, and with more color than most whites.

    Together with the Chardonnay I have started to prefer Pinot Gris to what I used to: Pinot Grigio.

    This wine was paired with Vietnamese fresh spring rolls with a complex peanut saycesesame oil, fresh ginger, mint, basil, felt parsley, and garlic. It was a perfect marriage with the wine holding its own while bringing out the herbs flavors. Smooth wine with an aromatic finish!
