Description

“My golden yellow tells 1,001 stories of the flavours of the Orient – and yet I am unmistakably from here. I have character and a beautiful depth.”

Nose

Our Gewürztraminer is an aromatically fruity white wine, with an unmistakable aroma of tropical fruits as well as roses and cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Palate

It is complex on the palate with a long finish.

Growing Conditions

“Plon” site with calcareous to gravelly loamy soil Orientation: East Altitude: 350 m Planting year: 1998 Vines/ha: 5,000 Form of cultivation: Guyot Yield: 55-60 hl/ha

Winemaking

We start the manual harvest of our white wine grapes early in the morning. Then we quickly bring the cool Gewürztraminer grapes to the cellar, where they are macerated for around 8 hours in an oxygen-free environment and then gently pressed. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Ageing also takes place in stainless steel tanks, without malolactic fermentation.

Appearance

In the glass it has a delicate golden yellow colour.

Food Pairing

Gewürztraminer goes very well with shellfish, spicy meat dishes, mature cheeses and Far Eastern cuisine.
