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.
