Gewurztraminer 100%
TASTING NOTES
The Gewürztraminer Grand Cru originates from the oldest (30 to 50 years old) estate vineyards on the hills surrounding the village of Bergheim. The soil here has a very pronounced mineral profile, as well as a geological variety that has developed in the course of natural phenomena throughout history. It is made exclusively from Gewürztraminer grapes that are harvested and selected entirely by hand at the beginning of October. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Endowed with a beautiful, brilliant straw yellow colour, it rotates in the glass with a beautiful consistency that heralds all the aromatic intensity that distinguishes it. Intriguing and decidedly elegant in its main profile, it alternates notes of boxwood, cut grass, coriander, marjoram and parsley. A few dried apricots describe the secondary scene and blend with jasmine and orange blossom. Full body, soft and enveloping structure and a finish of good density and warmth at the close. This wine is round, generous and assertive. Ideal for aperitifs, with foie gras, mature cheeses and desserts with exotic fruit. Perfect with spicy and sweet and sour dishes of Thai, Chinese and Indian cuisine. Perfect to drink for Christmas 2023
