MÉTHODES DE VINIFICATION ET D'ÉLEVAGE :

Traditional vinification and cultivation method. The grapes are harvested manually and then progressively pressed in a pneumatic press in order to extract the juice and aromas. The naturally present yeast on the grapes will start the alcoholic fermentation process that will change the grape juice into wine. Temperature controls are conducted throughout the fermentation process in order to guarantee persistence and balance. Two to three months after the fermentation process, the wine is racked in order to start maturing. Before bottling, each vat is filtered in order to guarantee the organic stability and conservation of the wine.

TEMPS DE GARDE : 8 years.
CONSEILS GASTRONOMIQUES :

Our Gewurztraminer can be served as an aperitif to accompany some foie gras. It also goes well with spicy dishes (exotic filet mignon, chicken curry, spicy fish dishes…), strong cheeses (Bleu, Munster…) and desserts (apple pie, shortcakes…).
