Top 4% wine in the world
Aromatic white wine
Blend: 100% Gewürztraminer
From: France, Vin d’Alsace AOC
By: Pierre & Louis Rolly-Gassmann
This luscious, aromatic gewurztraminer comes from the Rolly Gassmann domaine in the village of Rorschwihr, in the far northeastern French region of Alsace. It is made in a classic varietal style, with lychee and Rosé dominating the nose and a rounded, balanced palate. This is a wine made for food.
The Rolly Gassmann estate has around 45 hectares of vines in Rorschwihr, and both the Rolly and Gassmann families have been making wine here since the 17th century. The clay-rich vineyards are farmed organically and using some biodynamic principles, depending on the needs of the vintage.
The Gewurztraminer is hand-harvested and left to ferment naturally with indigenous yeasts. Depending on the vintage, the winemaker will add a small portion of late-harvested grapes to add body and sweetness, although balance is always at the forefront of Rolly Gassmann’s ethos.
