One of the so-called “Noble Varieties” of Alsace, Gewürztraminer makes wines with intense aromas both in dry and sweet styles. A highly demanding variety in terms of terroir which requires the best expositions, and a well- ventilated vineyard because of its compact bunches. In order to achieve its optimal ripeness, it is crucial to have a mild warm September and the yields must be low. We harvest around 50 q/ha of grapes.
It produces a full body, intensely aromatic and spicy wine. Harvesting the grapes at the right point is the key in preserving their natural acidity to achieve a well balanced wine.
