2005 I’llmitz Burgenland Pinot Gris

This one was drunk at the Republic of Texas Bar & Grill
Is a rare pinot gris, which you can only find in restaurants, if they still have it in stock, and was one of the BEST Pinot Gris I’ve ever tasted. I’ve tried to find more to buy, but it’s impossible. I couldn’t even find a picture of the bottle online!!

..the nose is intense lemon (almost Pledge like)…it is also more serious on the palate with quince, lemon and orange zest…it is round in the mouth with an oily texture but the acidity pokes through..no grassiness…quite pleasingIt was very tasty and tangy, amazing.
