Info about the wine

This wine is produced from a combination of different vineyards depending on the vintage. Young vines from limestone soils of the Grand Cru Goldert and Hengst are added to the Gewürztraminer. The limestone origin brings a better acidity and often a higher maturity. Therefore, the wine has a sweeter/richer balance. These grapes, which come from the best vineyards, are also harvested much later.

Color

Dense and brilliant golden yellow.

Nose

Pure exoticism is conveyed by the 2018 Gewurztraminer Roche Calcaire on the nose. At first, it is the ripe banana and a scent of vanilla foam that shows itself very insistently. With oxygen, peach, lychee, quince jelly, pear, orange and the typical rose scent join in. All well embedded in the chalky subsoil, which the wine already reveals impressively in the youth.

Palate

Fine sweetness takes the palate immediately for itself, at the same time it is inspired by an immense freshness and a gripping tannin structure. Great and drinking animating Gewurztraminer, which knows how to convince with a lot of power and expression. This can still mature for years, but those who are impatient, combine it already now with spicy cuisine, sweet delicacies and cheese. 

Food recommendations by Christina Hilker
