Staff Pick Notes

This is a fun yet versatile wine. A delicious blend of Auxerrois (60%), Riesling (25%), and Muscat (15%), it has lovely fruit from that Alsatian sunshine and a clean, crisp, mineral-driven finish.

Some wines are designed to be enjoyed as a complement to food, but this wine is great either way!

The list goes on: Pinot Gris is known as "Auxerrois Gris" in Alsace, and at one time Chardonnay was called "Auxerrois Blanc" in the Moselle region (though this last term fell into disuse...
