2017 Les Vins Pirouettes by Binner Tutti Frutti - Alsace, France
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
Les Vins Pirouettes is a project launched by Christian Binner, that brings affordable natural wines to the table, and at the same time helps organic and biodynamic grape growers in Alsace move away from selling their grapes to cooperatives and towards making their own wines. Tutti Frutti de Stéphane is a Blend of Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Auxerrois, Pinot Blanc and Muscat. Nice acidity and a hint of effervescence lift lovely notes of citrus and orchard fruits that give way to richer aromatics as the wine opens. Best of all it’s a great inspiration to explore Alsatian cuisine which has a fascinating combination of French and German influences. Pair it with Flammekueche (Alsation white pizza!) or Schupfnudeln (we can't pronounce it either, but it's the Alsatian version of spaetzle, usually served pan fried to a crisp golden brown in sage butter, and absolutely delicious).
