The Zinnkoepflé hillside is a unique combination of limestone-sandstone soils, south-south-east facing hillsides and a Mediterranean micro-climate. This Grand Cru terroir produces wines of great aromatic intensity, with delicious spicy notes. It is also the highest Grand Cru in Alsace, peaking at 431m above sea level.
Beautiful, radiant golden tones with delicate tears, announcing a rich, refined nose packed with indulgent spices and exotic fruit (mango). The bouquet is intense and complex, the palate spicy yet well-rounded. The overall effect is fresh and superbly-balanced, building to a long finish accented with sweet honey and a dash of pepper. A wonderful blend of power and finesse.
This Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Zinnkoepflé is a great match for strong cheeses (Munster, Roquefort etc.), foie gras and desserts such as traditional pâtisseries or fruit tarts. Ideal for festive occasions.
