Blurring the lines between light red and dark rosé comes this Frankenstein of a wine made from an infusion of Pinot Noir with the juice of Pinot Gris (Pinot Grigio) and Riesling. Dare we stay it's one of our current favourites... it's fun, interesting, delectable and best of all it's hella drinkable! Apparently, our importer says it also works well decanted and opens up wonderfully when left overnight. We wouldn't know though - it doesn’t last long!
Don't forget to chill.

About the winemaker:
"Despite being only a few kilometres away from the touristic Andlau, the village of Reichsfeld is off the beaten path, idyllic and preserved, almost stuck in a time warp. Tucked away, up a valley and protected by the Ungersberg mountain (culminating at 901m); Reichsfeld and its schist soils have been considered prime location for winemaking and produced some of the most sought-after wines as early as the 12th century. The Comtes of Andlau showed interest first and during the 14th century the Cistercian monks planted the steep côteau of Schieferberg (hill of slate) before extending the plantings to the neighbouring village of Nothalten, now famous for its Muenchberg Grand Cru on pink sandstone and volcanic soil.
The Bohns have been vignerons in Reichsfeld for over three centuries, passing down savoir-faire and knowledge from generation to generation.
Nowadays Bernard and Arthur, father and son, look after their heritage with biodiversity and wildlife conservation as core values. Wild cover crop is not mowed but instead crushed and rolled with a rolo faca (knife-roller) to preserve humidity and increase life (e.g. humus, insects) in the vineyard.
Bernard has always had an experimental mindset trialling with vintage blending, perpetual reserve, fermentation in receptacles of any shape or form, straw wines etc.
With the arrival of the young (now in his mid-20s) and talented Arthur at the domaine around 2010, this pioneering spirit has reached another level with the making of sulphur free and skin contact wines. Those are the wines which stroke us the most with their vitality, strength and authenticity; unique wines we are hugely excited about."
