2014 Domaine Charles Baur Gewurztraminer Pfersigberg Grand Cru
"100% Gewürztraminer from 25 year old vines, limestone and clay soil, well drained subsoil. The Baur family has one hectare of Gewürztraminer in Pfersigberg, on very steep slopes enjoying south exposure, allowing the grapes to reach optimum ripeness.
"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 in temperature controlled (20°C) tanks. After fermentation, the wine matures on its lees for 5 months. This semi-sweet wine displays a floral nose of rose petals and violet, with a rich and spicy palate. 225 cases made." - Distributor
