Alsace is the home of Pinot Gris and this rich, weighty style shows why it captured the world's imagination. Our own import, Schoffit's Gris is close to dry but packed with flavour - not only citrus, peach and pear but also floral and subtle earthy-mineral flavours to add interest with food. It has all the richness of a NZ Gris, just more layers and texture. One to try for hardened Europhiles or Kiwis wanting something more food-friendly or, just...more.

Its Origins

Bernard Schoffit is a brilliant pioneer in Alsace’s greatest Grand Cru, Rangen de Thann. The domaine, started by Bernard’s father Robert at 10 hectares, is situated near Colmar. 25 years ago, Bernard, then still very young, embarked on an ambitious program of buying land in Rangen, around the Clos St. Theobold. Totaling nearly 6.5 hectares, a good part of it had been abandoned because it was too steep to work. Through sheer determination and ambition, he has now reclaimed all 6.5 hectares. From these incredibly steep slopes, with incredibly low yields, he is making simply extraordinary wine from each plot he grows. Bernard’s gift for wine-making is not reserved only for his Rangen wines. In his vineyards near Colmar he practices the same rigorous approach to yields. These yields, very old vines, and Bernard’s guiding hand produce wines that are all marked by the following characteristics: intensity, very pure varietal character, great concentration of fruit and richness on the palate, and perfect acidity to balance and carry this weight into a long and brilliant finish. Organic.

What The Critics Say

90+/100 Vinous, Ian D'Agata

"Bright yellow. Fresh lime, apricot and flint on the nose, complicated by a subtle hint of brown spices. Then rich and ripe but dry and backward on the palate, with lemony acidity lifting the ripe pear and peach flavors. Finishes long and luscious but with plenty of acid lift." Drink 2018 - 2028
