Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Spiegel

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Spiegel stretches half-way up the two benches of Guebwiller and Bergholtz. The reputation of the Grand Cru Spiegel dates back to the 1950s when the winegrowers set up charters of quality and precise characteristics, which now makes original wines with fine aromas.

WINE & FOOD PAIRINGS

This Gewurztraminer Spiegel matches well with oriental and Asian cuisine such as Thai, Chinese, Moroccan and Indian, roast meat combined with exotic fruits, spiced salads, fruit pies and crumbles, blue cheeses and also as an aperitif.

VINTAGE 2015

A very mild spring followed by high temperatures in June and July, with episodes of severe drought accompanied by stormy passage allowed a vintage with a perfect health status of the grapes. 2015 devoted the talents of experienced balancing actors: the management of alcohol balance / residual sugars / acids needed to be very precise.

TASTING NOTES

The Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Spiegel presents a gold yellow color with silver tints. On the nose there is an explosion of notes of nutmeg and cinnamon brought out by exotic fruits aromas. On the palate it is round and refined.

Temperature of service: 8– 10° C°

Aging capacity: 3 to 15 years.

VINIFICATION

For the making of our Grands Crus we use perfectly ripe and healthy grapes from carefully cultivated and selected vineyards. The yields are low and the vineyards are generally planted with old vines. For these wines we focus on terroir or vineyard expression with all elements that influence the aromas, the composition and typical character of each Grand Cru.
