wine on the hoof

I'm fairly sure these are Grauer Burgunder / Rulaender(Pinot Gris), one of my favourite grapes. October 2005 at Oberrotweil in the Kaiserstuhl in SW Germany.

    Beautiful! Oh, they look so good hanging there all ripe and juicy.
    In 74 I was stationed in Kaiserslautern for a year but the only wine we ever drank was Black Cat. : )

    Everything, but _everything_ they make in the Kaiserstuhl is better than Black Cat :-) We're having to be careful to keep a stock of ordinary Muscadet and stuff to avoid drinking the nice German stuff too quickly! (See "Steve and 530d in Breisach" and read the caption)

    Isn't Rulaender a white grape? These look like red grapes.

    dbad - Ruländer / Grauer Burgunder is Pinot Gris / Pinot Grigio and is a red grape, though a fairly light one. But in the Kaiserstuhl it's always made into a white wine. As Grauer Burgunder they don't leave it on the skins for very long so it comes out about the same colour as Chardonnay (they do the same with Pinot Grigio in Italy); as Ruländer they leave it on the skins for a bit longer so it comes out a lovely honey-gold colour and has a slightly more robust flavour - bottled sunshine!
