DESCRIPTION :

Our Grand Cru Froehn is amongst the INAO’s 51 best terroirs found in Alsace. A sweet white wine with a light-yellow colour. Its nose is a delicate mix of exotic (lychee) and floral (rose petals) aromas. Well-balanced, rounded and harmonious, it has a refreshing sensation on the palate thanks to the sharpness of its minerality. Good length in mouth and long-lasting longevity, this is an excellent vin de garde.

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 is a first-class aperitif! It goes well with foie gras and can also be used with spicy dishes (exotic filet mignon, chicken curry…), strong cheeses (Bleu, Munster…) and desserts (apple pie, shortcakes…).
