Jean Luc Mader Pinot Gris 2013
The Mader domaine is a very small quantity, high quality wine producer based in the picture postcard village of Hunawihr in the middle of vineyards on the Route des Vins.
The family own 9 hectares of vineyards, including prized holdings of vines in the famous ‘Rosacker’ Grand Cru vineyard and also now in the Grand cru Schl0ssberg. All vineyard work is carried out by hand and since 2005 their son Jerome is now running the estate having studied and gained a Diploma in Oenology. Since returning to the family estate Jerome has also converted all their vineyards to bio-dynamic viticulture.
On the nose this wine is pure, no botrytis notes, a mix of white flowers and peach, with a touch of smoke. The taste is elegant with little residual sugar (13 grams), and a welcome acidity. The length is beautiful. To drink or keep two more years. Roger Voss' note on the 2011: Off dry, this rich and spicy wine has a fine, creamy texture, ripe yellow fruits and a mango juice flavor. It’s full-bodied and generous yet with a fine, crisp aftertaste to balance." Roger Voss; Wine Enthusiast Magazine
