2007 Beck-Hartweg Gewürztraminer Selections de Grains Nobles 500ml (Previously $69)

SKU #1062959

Florian Beck-Hartweg, along with parents Michel and Yvette, share the philosophy that great wines aren't made in the cellar but in vineyards. Fermentation and aging is completed only in old oak casks, that don't interfere in any way with the taste of the wine (casks are 100 years old or so!). Fermentation with natural yeasts, and absolutely no other addition to the wine other than SO2, in small quantity of course. This newly imported producer follows the organic chart: absolutely, using no chemical products in the vineyards and absolutely no fertilization (chemical or organic) because Florian maintains that if the soil is healthy, microorganisms are able to give to the vineyard what it needs. By promoting biodiversity, better resistance against diseases and rotting is achieved. So when all this is done, it is very easy to spray less and only with natural products (sulfur, copper and plant extracts). We are excited about these insanely well priced, limited production wines, and we know you will be, too.

Light yellow color with nutty, peach, mineral aromas. On the palate medium bodied, well balanced with very good acidity and peach, spice, and slight mineral flavors. Long finish.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Gewurztraminer

- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gewürztraminer is actually a pink-skinned incarnation of the Traminer varietal, and also the most widely planted variation. Known for its heady perfume redolent of rose petals and spice and tropical lychee flavor, its fuller body and moderate acidity, it can be made in a variety of styles ranging from completely dry to sweet late harvest wines. The best representations of the grape are grown in Austria and France's Alsace, though it's being made in smaller quantities in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Pacific Northwest, California, New Zealand and Australia.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Alsace

- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history. Geologically isolated from both countries, Alsace has also maintained much of its own culture and wine tradition, while also being influenced by the traditions of both countries. Alsatian wine is easily recognized by it traditional tall bottles. Alsatian wine makers produce a unique style of varietal wine, 90 percent of which is white.
