2016 Spätlese Trocken Weingut Petri
Very much an aperitif wine, yet fleshy and bold enough to match with food, this has notes of pear and a lean, crisp finish. For those who enjoy taut energy in their wine. Will Lyons, The Sunday Times (Dec 2017)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Stainless steel and chock-full of fruit. Very decent price. Light years from its cousin, commercial Pinot Grigio! Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 2017)
Maximilian Petri's vines are in the Pfalz region on 14 hectares around the village of Herxheim am Berg on the ‘Deutsche Weinstraße’ - the German wine route. This wine-growing municipality is situated 200 metres above sea level on a foothill of the “Haardt” mountains (which are an extension of the Vosges mountains in Alsace), which provide shelter against adverse weather conditions. Little rain, lots of sun and a generally mild climate ensure that even the most demanding types of vines flourish, while the chalky soil with a high mineral content define the character of his wines. Vine cultivation is taken very seriously. Maximilian use's neither herbicides nor insecticides, and only enough fertilizer to provide sufficient nourishment for the vines. Grapes are hand-picked, low yields adhered too and gentle pressing with barrique ageing to retain the grapes natural flavours.
