GEWURZTRAMINER

One of the finest of white grape varietals

GEWURZTRAMINER

Also called Roter traminer in Germany. Well known in Alsace, where the term also designates the appellation of wines made from this grape variety. "Traminer" is in fact the aromatic white grape variety of Tramin (Northern Italy), a term to which is added "gewürz" which means "spicy" or "aromatic". And for good reason, the rarity of its powerful and very characteristic scents reminiscent of rose or lychee is prized. Aromas that are at times even heady and intense, with a rich bouquet. Gewuztraminer is vinified as a dry white wine or as a sweet wine in vendanges tardives (late harvests), or sélection grains nobles. It is therefore not a grape variety with a high yield, which makes the resulting wines highly valued.

SWEET WINE

The botrytised grape (known as affected by "noble rot") gives birth to a sweet wine with a golden yellow colour and amber hues. On the nose we find the same aromatic range as in dry wines but with more nuances of honey and dried apricot.  The cuvées from the Grains Nobles selection are sweeter than those from the Vendanges Tardives. Creamy on the palate with a pronounced sweetness. Smooth and persistent length. A delightful mouth feel!

MORE INFORMATION

Gewurztraminer based wines are straightforward with a strong personality that explodes on the nose and in the mouth with a persistent finish.Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives are mellow wines, while Gewurztraminer Sélection Grains Nobles are made from noble rot and have a higher sugar content. A natural sweetness that allows it to be cellared for many years.
