Info about the situation

Immediately outside the village, to the northwest, at the extreme edge of the foothills, lies the Sonnenglanz vineyard at an altitude of 220 to 270 metres to the southeast. It has a very favourable microclimate with particularly low rainfall . The soil is fairly homogeneous, the subsoil consisting only of Tertiary conglomerate of the limestones of the Rhine Graben and interstratified marls from the Eo-oligocene age, forming a fairly heavy, well-structured and very stony limestone soil.


Brilliant golden yellow.


An intense aroma pours from the glass of the 2017 Sonnenglanz Gewurztraminer Grand Cru. Roses, hibiscus and the scent of Earl Grey tea combine with apricot, orange zest, orange liqueur and marzipan. A concise wine with a lot of aroma and complex depth.


Sweetness and acidity in harmony give it liveliness. As in the year before, a finesse and structure reminiscent of Riesling comes to the fore on the palate, yet this is unmistakably Gewürztraminer - and what a Gewürztraminer it is. A wonderful representative of a grape variety where Alsace is always setting standards - and no limits to creativity in the kitchen for chefs and hobby cooks.
