Gewurztraminer Tradition 2018 – Gold Medal

14,80 

Rich and exuberant on candied notes, this Gewurztraminer pleases for its aromatic and richness.

Its golden colour is shimmering. Incredible nose, very aromatic, fruity and floral on rose petals notes and an exotic touch.

In the mouth the Gewurztraminer is ample, rich and creamy, with notes of exotic fruits (pineapple, mango, passion fruit), honey and candied fruits. A candy for lovers of this grape variety.

It pairs well with spicy dishes (Chinese, Indonesian or Indian cuisine), foie gras, or a white meat dish in a sweet and savory sauce.

Description

SOIL, CULTURE 

Clay-limestone soil.

The vines are grown using traditional Alsace methods, respecting the “AOC Alsace” specifications.

The estate has taken the step towards organic farming by starting its conversion in 2019.

Always mindful of the environment, we work our soils in order to preserve biodiversity in our plots.

Yields are controlled in order to have the pure expression of each of our terroirs.

HARVEST & WINE-MAKING

Manual harvesting to protect our grapes, followed by pneumatic pressing allows us to press the grapes gently, for a fine extraction of high quality.

Fermentation temperatures are controlled by cooling.

After maturing for a few months in our stainless steel tanks, our wines are bottled after a fine tangential filtration to stabilize them.

Storage in bottles in our cellars at a constant temperature.

COMMENTARY

Shimmering golden colour.

An explosion of aromas for the most exuberant wines of Alsace!

On the nose, one perceives a dominant scent of candied fruit, exotic, mango, lychee, honey, flowers, rose and spices: Sichuan pepper.

The palate is dense, ample and mellow. The finish is long and lively. The balance is monumental and very tasty, tasty. The fruit is precise, exuberant, just right.

WINE AND FOOD

Gastronomic wine, which goes well with cooking that can be exotic, expressive and slightly  spicy.

Very nice with white meat dishes served with light sweet and sour sauces but also with strong cheese,
