IDENTITY

This grape variety, called "Vieux Traminer" has been known for a very long time in Alsace, but has gradually been replaced by a more aromatic and spicy variant... Gewurztraminer! The winegrowers of the village of Heiligenstein (and a few neighbouring villages) continue to produce this wine, which has become rare. It is made from the Savagnin Rose, which by its elegance, strength and subtle aromas, ranks among the noble grape varieties of Alsace along with the great Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer.

WINEMAKING

Golden yellow and shiny.

Complex and slightly spicy aromas.

Rich and full-bodied with aromas of honey and aroma. Heady and full-bodied wine with excellent length.

Klevener de Heiligenstein, an original and seductive wine.
