"The chalk soil of Champagne makes a reappearance in the Pfersigberg vineyard. In this wine it shows as elegance and crispness. That's not to take away from the rich, rounded texture and exotic fruits; it adds complexity and great style. Drink from 2017." April 2015.

Product Description:

"Gewürztraminer from 25 year old vines - limestone and clay soil, well drained subsoil. The Baur family has one hectare of Gewürztraminer in Pfersigberg Grand Cru, on very steep slopes enjoying South exposure, allowing the grapes to reach an optimum level of ripenesss."The grapes are hand harvested and hand sorted. The ones attacked by noble rot are removed. The grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and ferment slowly under temperature controlled (20°C). After fermentation, the wine matures on the lees for 5 months. This semi sweet wine displays a floral nose of rose petals and violet, with a rich and spicy palate. Pair with foie gras, cheese and Asian cuisine. 225 cases made." - Importer
