More Pinot Gris

Weingut Herbster, Kirchhofener Batzenberg, Grauburgunder 2008, Baden
You may or may not have caught my post on Herbster's Sauvignon Blanc a few months ago. Anyway, I was so impressed back then that, en route back from the Dreisamstadion this Saturday, I called back at the same shop where I bought the SB. A bottle of Herbster's Pinot Gris took my fancy this time.

On the nose, the typical red honey-like melon which seems to be my stock reaction to Pinot Gris these days. There is also something blossomy. On the palate, very dry. Very much a food wine. A day later, it's opened up nicely. Understated and elegant. I've used it this evening to toast a win over the old enemy.
