Grape Variety: Pinot Gris

Firmly convinced of the need to preserve the environment, owner and winemaker, Georges Lorentz began the transition to organic viticulture in the early 2000s, becoming fully organic in 2009, converting all vineyards (33 hectares).

The organic certification, obtained in 2012, represents the recognition of the commitment to, and respect for, the organic process. All the wines of the Domain Gustave Lorentz, from the 2012 vintage, are stamped with the approved organic certification logo.

"The name EVIDENCE reflects the respect we have for the biodiversity in our vineyards, as evidenced by the return of game birds to our land, which has inspired this label. The feathers represent the wine’s finesse and balance, while also alluding to its wild and natural nature."

One can’t be a winemaker without passion and it was this passion that drove Charles Lorentz Senior to develop his vineyard on the slopes of the Altenberg near Bergheim, banking on its excellence. The grapes grown in this exceptional terroir have always been vinified separately. Riesling, Pinot-Gris, Gewurztraminer and other Muscats that originate on these slopes demonstrate from vintage to vintage a unique character. It was the continuing presence of this unique character that resulted in the vineyards being awarded the supreme accolade of ‘Grand Cru’ in 1983.

Bold yellow, fresh, elegant and aromatic intensity. It evokes white fruit such as peach, pear and also combines hints of lime blossom and acacia. On the palate, this wine impresses with its dry balance and minerality. Despite little sugar, it ends with good length and a fresh and fruity touch.

Pairs beautifully with fish, vegetarian dishes and summery salads.
