How to say it

Rollee Gassman Guh-vurz-trameenah

Product guide note

This wine comes from a traditionally run domaine (wine estate) in the region of Alsace in the East of France (near the border with Germany), made from the Gewurztraminer grape variety. It has intense aromas of lychee and is slightly sweet with plenty of lush fruit. A good match with Thai influenced food.

Production note

The Domaine still runs on very traditional lines: they are often one of the last families in Alsace to pick their grapes, looking not for sweetness but rather weight and concentration. Minimum levels of interference during the fermentation, using natural yeasts. Stainless steel fermentation but at slightly warmer temperatures than the norm which gives the wine character. With the exception of the top cuvee of Pinot Noir, everything is matured in huge, old wooden barrels and inox.
