Light Burgundy

Formerly known in Germany as Ruländer and now referred to as Grey Burgundy

The Grey Burgundy grape features small egg-shaped fruits, and its colour varies from grey-brown to browny red. The Palatinate is the ideal region to grow this grape variety.

Grey Burgundy – the wine

A young, light dry to semi-dry Grey Burgundy is a good summer wine. Dry cabinet wines and late harvest wines go well with sea food, strong-tasting sea fish, pasta, lamb, wild poultry, young game and mature soft cheese. Barrique wines are a perfect match for intensively tasting lamb and light game dishes such as wild poultry or venison. Fruity and sweet late harvest wines are a particularly good accompaniment to fatty blue cheeses and desserts containing honey, almonds or marzipan.
