ALCOOL : 12,5 %

MÉTHODES DE VINIFICATION ET D'ÉLEVAGE :

Traditional vinification and cultivation method. In order to be labelled as “Sélection de Grains Nobles”, each grape (infected with noble rot) is harvested manually one by one. The juice of these grapes needs to be highly concentrated (306g of sugar per litre) which gives the potential to reach an alcoholic level of 18.2° (verified by an INAO controller).

The grapes are 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.

TEMPS DE GARDE : 15 years or more.
CONSEILS GASTRONOMIQUES :

Our Gewurztraminer Sélection de Grains Nobles can be served as a first-class aperitif. It goes well with foie gras and desserts (apple pie, shortcakes, fruit mousse…).
