Albert Seltz Sylvaner Grand Cru Zotzenberg 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

About Albert Seltz is situated in the heart of Mittelbergheim in the Bas-Rhin of Alsace. Albert Seltz, the 14th generation owner and winemaker, took over from his father in 1980 when he was only 19 years old. At that time, Albert had already developed a sense of the potential of his estate and a passion for the variety of Sylvaner. Immediately, he reduced the production by two thirds, reduced the yields, and converted to strictly sustainable organic agricultural practices. In the cellar he practices minimal intervention, employing indigenous yeast and sur lie aging. In Alsace and beyond, Albert is known for his love of Sylvaner, so much so that he was instrumental in the national institute of Appellation d'Origine's decision to allow a Grand Cru Zotzenberg Sylvaner. Since the first vintage that will bear this distinction is 2005, today he calls the wine prior Sono Contento.
