Domaine Saint-Rémy Gewurztraminer Vieilles Vignes 2018
The Ehrhart family has been making wine in Alsace since 1725, and the family tradition continues on today just as it has for the last few centuries. The Ehrharts are based in the village of Wettolsheim, five kilometers west of Colmar. While Gewurztraminer, Riesling, and Pinot Gris serve as the primary focus of their plantings, they also work with Pinot Noir, Pinot Auxerrois, Sylvaner, and Chardonnay.
The Ehrharts harvest all of their fruit by hand, sorting through the clusters in the vineyard rather than in the winery. The grapes are pressed gently and undergo long, traditional fermentations with native yeasts. They allow the wines to rest on their lees and stir them twice a month for 6 to 8 months. Given the incredible diversity of terroirs from granite to limestone to sand, and slow vinifications, the finished wines are abundant in opulent aromatics yet are chiseled with a striking minerality and clean acidity.
Elegant nose of rose and clove. Fruity, round and strong supported by a pleasant freshness. Serve as an aperitif, with Asian dishes that in a cheesy or sweet n sour sauce.
