The mixture of alluvial sand, clay and calcareous soils provide the ideal conditions for the demanding Gewürztraminer vine. This Gewürztraminer shows a particularly good expression of its terroir, it is robust and silky with a complex aroma of rose petals, nutmeg, cinnamon, ripe oranges and lemon balm. An elegant and well balanced wine with great maturing potential.
Tasting notes: Full yellow in colour; a deliciously intensely aromatic and floral bouquet with hints of honey and ginger and a flavour of lychees; full-bodied, luscious but dry, the opulence cut by vibrant, firm acidity.
Cellaring potential: 6-8 years.
Food Combination: A great favourite at parties and for social drinking, it makes an excellent partner for Chinese and Thai cuisine, creamy Indian curries, foie gras, duck, lobster or crayfish, as well as blue cheeses such as gorgonzola and stilton. Serve lightly chilled: 10-12° C.
Grape Variety: Gewürztraminer, from vertical espalier-trained vines with approx. 5.500 plants per hectare.
Location: Selected vineyards at altitudes of 450-550 metres a.s.l.; gravelly, sandy and in some areas loamy with calcium carbonate deposits.
Yielding: 45 hl/ha
Winemaking: The de-stemmed, crushed grapes are coldmacerated and gently pressed. The juice ferments in stainless-steel tanks at 18° C. The young wine refines on its fine lees for 12 months and further 6 months in bottles before release.
