This is a pitch-perfect orange rendition of Alsatian Gewürztraminer from Julien Albertus of Domaine Kumpf et Meyer who works sixteen hectares of biodynamic vines in Rosheim, located in the northern reaches of Alsace (northeastern France).
Vinification: 100% Gewürztraminer hand-harvested at full ripeness from 16-27 year-old vines grown in clay/limestone soil. The grapes are destemmed and macerated on its skins for 15 days before pressing. A relatively short spontaneous fermentation is completed with only the help of native yeasts. The wine is aged for 10-12 months in old 500L before bottling unfined, unfiltered, with no additional SO2.
