Semi-sweet Grand Cru Gewurztraminer from the 'Goldert' Grand Cru. 

This terroir is a Gewurztraminer terroir par excellence!  Goldert is the only Alsace terroir where the geological substrate is only composed of marine Oolithic limestone. In the median part of and lower hillside, the subsoil is made up of tertiary conglomerates and covered by soliflucted Quaternary deposits where the calcareous and sandstone pebbles blend into a clayey template.
This Grand Cru soil is deep, relatively rich and fertile and benefits from a good natural draining.  In addition, this soil-type heats slowly and consequently gives the wines a beautiful acidity. The slow evolution of grapes into optimum physiological maturity allows the development of a powerful structure while preserving aroma finesse.

Located to the north of the picturesque village of Gueberschwihr, Goldert stretches out between 230 and 330 metres in altitude. Its steep slope, from 50 to 60% in the upper part, becomes must more gentle towards the plain. It benefits from morning sunshine due to its east exposure, protecting it from the excess heat notably during the summer period.

    PALATE: at once mineral and suave on the palate, good balance, persistent crisp peppery finish.

    Its strong and round structure goes well with oily fish (trout with sun-dried tomatoes), white meat (poultry fricassee with coconut milk) and game. It goes well with sautéed foie gras with spices. Chinese cuisine also pairs well with Gewurztraminer
