TASTING NOTES
The Gewürztraminer Grand Cru comes from the oldest vineyards (30 to 50 years old) of the property, located on the hills surrounding the village of Bergheim. The present terrain consists of a very marked mineral profile, as well as a geological variety developed over the course of the natural phenomena of history. It is produced exclusively with Gewürztraminer grapes harvested and selected entirely by hand at the beginning of October. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Equipped with a beautiful bright straw yellow color, it rotates in the glass with a beautiful consistency that heralds all the aromatic intensity that distinguishes it. The nose is elegant with delicate aromas of white flowers, ripe yellow fruit and with notes of cardamom and honey. In the mouth you can feel the pulp of white peach, toasted hazelnut to finish with hints of spice. Excellent structure and softness, integrated with a gustatory texture of great intensity. Ideal for an aperitif, with foie gras, aged cheeses and desserts with exotic fruit. Perfect to accompany spicy and sweet and sour dishes of Thai, Chinese and Indian cuisine.
