Overview

Alsace A.C.

The Traminer is probably the most famous Alsace wine. It comes from the North of Italy and dates from the XVI century. The Gewurztraminer (literally means spicy or musky Traminer) is a selection of the most aromatic Traminer wines and became Gewurztraminer around the year 1950.

The harvest for our Gewurztraminer 2009 started on 24 September 2009. Slow, pneumatic pressing was followed by static racking. Fermentation in thermo-regulated tuns for one to four months. Maturation on lees from six to eight months. Bottled in June 2010.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The robe is yellow with light green and pale reflections. The disk is limpid and bright.

Aroma

The nose is floral and spicy with notes of rose, saffron and black pepper.

Palate

In the mouth, soft on the front, sweet and pleasant. A slight touch of bitterness can be perceived in the middle palate, but remains very fresh. The balance is very elegant, astringency is coated by a delicate sweetness and brings a tender freshness to the wine. Ready to be savoured at any time of the day.

Food Matching

It accompanies perfectly all kinds of spicy dishes from oriental, Chinese, Indonesian or Indian cuisines. It will also be a marvellous match for cheese from cow’s milk, soft or with washed rind, such as Munster and Epoisses… Serve at 12°C.
