Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Shiny yellow gold colour. Nice frank, open nose of white peaches, fresh apricots, hints of pear, fresh pineapple and then white chocolate. Good balance on the roundness, freshness, full-bodied. Nice fruity character with a hint of spices. Nice frank, tense and greedy length.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
Late harvests (appellation mention since 1984) are harvested at over-ripeness several weeks after the harvest. Contrary to some sweet wines, they keep a freshness and natural acidity in a flavour unique in the rest of world.
Domain and appellation
Our Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives 2017 comes exclusively from our Kessler Grand Cru. A follow-up work is carried out from the winter pruning of the vines until the harvest.
The grapes are harvested manually on our slopes and then transported in crates (to avoid damaging the berries) to our cellars where they are slowly pressed. After a settling period of about 3 days, the perfectly limpid juices are put to ferment in tuns where the temperature is rigorously controlled.
Fermentation lasts from 1 to 3 months until spring. The wines are stabilised, filtered and then bottled.
