ZIND HUMBRECHT GEWURZTRAMINER ROCHE CALCAIRE


As of 2015, the Gewurztraminer Calcaire is only made from the very small vineyard located next to the Grand Cru Goldert in Gueberschwihr. It enjoys a late ripening climate and faces due East on a gentle slope. The soil is made of a mix of Oolithic limestone, clay and some sand/silicium that comes from the erosion of the mountains just above. This is classic land for this grape. The depth and nature of the soil also prevents the vines from suffering from heat and drought, so it performed very well in 2015. With a nice ripeness, it fermented quickly over a month and kept a normal amount of sweetness.
