Dachshund Pinot Grigio 2016

Dachshund Pinot Grigio 2016

Helllllooooo long weekend! Welcome to summer which has officially started with a steamy forecast this weekend. Kids have finished school, gardens are growing, patios are filling up and fridges are being packed with white wines. This week’s wine is one that definitely requires chilling for that crisp, thirst-quenching sip that will help keep you cool all weekend long. Dachshund Pinot Grigio 2016 is bursting with fruit and is the perfect pour right out of the fridge, so you may want to make some space for a bottle or three!

Tasting Note: Dachshund gives a German nod to the Italian style of Pinot Grigio, showing ripe citrus and crisp apple notes, a balanced structure and a refreshing finish.

Enjoy With: Seafood, summer salads, and grilled chicken or veggies.

Style: A crisp, refreshing light-bodied white wine.

Terroir / Region: The Rheinhessen region of Germany has been growing Grauburgunder (a.k.a. Pinot Grigio/Gris) for hundreds of years. In this bottling, we see the influence of the lighter Italian style of the grape rather than the richer, sometimes sweeter, German style. Bordered by the Rhine and Nahe rivers as well as the Haardt mountains, the Rheinhessen is known as the ‘land of the thousand hills’ and is the perfect place for growing grapes to make a clean, refreshing Pinot Grigio.

Producer: Dachshund wines were born out of a passion for dachshund dogs (of course) and quality German wine. Brett and Debra Halby’s love for their rescued Dachshund dogs provided the inspiration, and through a partnership with the Moselland Co-Op, the famed vineyards of the Rheinhessen in Germany provided the wine. The Halbys find that supporting the work of dachshund rescues and breed enthusiasts is the most rewarding part of the Dachshund Wines mission.
