    Riesling Réserve 2017, Cave Vinicole de Hunawihr, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    AL06

    This small co-operative, founded in 1954, has 110 members and 200 hectares of vineyard in the Haut-Rhin, nine kilometres from Colmar.

     

    Grapes for the Riesling Réserve are grown in vineyards running along the South and South-East facing hillside slopes of Hunawihr, at an altitude of 250-320 metres above sea level. The average age of the vines is over 25 years old.

     

    Wine maker Nicolas Garde selected each parcel individually to ensure the best quality for this Réserve wine. The temperature controlled fermentation took place at around 17°C for three weeks with local Alsace yeasts. The wine was then aged on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks for three months before careful filtration. No malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place.

     

    A bright and elegant straw yellow with delicate silver tints. The nose is nicely complex with citrus, pear and white flower notes.The palate shows lively attack and is rich in the aromas of the bouquet, especially citrus. A long-lasting wine with a refreshing finish.

    Gewürztraminer 2017 Réserve, Cave Vinicole de Hunawihr, 12% vol, 75cl

    AL13

    This small co-operative, founded in 1954, has 110 members and 200 hectares of vineyard in the Haut-Rhin, nine kilometres from Colmar.

     

    Grapes for the Gewürztraminer Réserve are grown in vineyards running along the south and south-east facing hillside slopes around the village of Hunawihr at an altitude of 250-320 metres above sea level. The average age of the vines is 25 years old.

     

    This Gewürztraminer was made from a blend of micro-parcels from the Hunawihr vineyards, picked at optimum ripeness. The temperature controlled fermentation took place between 16-18°C for three weeks, followed by four months in stainless steel tanks to settle before careful filtration. No malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place.

     

    Straw yellow in colour with an elegant silver gold tint. The nose is complex with very delicate flavours of exotic lychee and mango with a hint of rose. Full-bodied, this is a medium dry wine with a refreshing acidity. Rose perfumes continue on the long finish.

  • Pinot Noir 2017, Domaine Bruno Sorg, Eguisheim, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    Pinot Noir 2017, Domaine Bruno Sorg, Eguisheim, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    AL01

    This tiny domaine is the source of some of the finest, richest and most concentrated wines in Alsace and their Pinot Noir is also one of the very best in the region.

     

    Domaine Bruno Sorg was created in 1965 by Renée and Bruno Sorg in Ingersheim, the village where Renée was born.

     

    In 1972, they bought a house with outbuildings in Eguisheim, the village where Bruno was born, and where the business is located today.

     

    In 2004 François, Bruno’s son, built a temperature controlled winery just outside the village. François says he now has time to think instead of climbing up and down ladders and stairs.

     

    Their decision to follow the principles of sustainable farming for the vineyards enables the coexistence of natural, and sometimes rare, species of fauna and flora alongside the vines.

     

    Low yielding, hand picked fruit and careful vinification in temperature controlled conditions gives an elegant and restrained Pinot Noir. The colour is bright and clear with a nose filled with summer berries, cherries and spicy aromas. The palate is light with a beautifully balanced style – fruit, refreshing acidity and very soft tannins.

    The Pinot Gris is dry and rich with the spice and texture so typical of the variety. A backbone of firm acidity gives the wine a lovely structure and balance and prevents it from being overblown.

    The crémant is made from 50% Pinot Blanc & Pinot Auxerrois, 10% Pinot Gris and 40% Chardonnay and spends three years “sur latte” (on its lees) before being riddled and disgorged.

     

    The wine is pale in appearance with fine, tiny bubbles. The nose is complex, toasty with a hint of citrus and apples. The mousse is rich, with the palate fresh and fruity with a long, clean finish.
