Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Kritt 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: "It s not too light, not too rich, but has drop dead drinkability... makes you love every single sip from the first to the last." - Billy Munnelly, Billy s Best Bottles "Dark cherry colour, richly scented with concentrated aromas of ripe blackberry and baked plum and earthy hints of minerals and warm soil. Robust, vibrant and jovial. Excellent value." - 4 of 5 stars, Konrad Ejbich for City Bites Magazine (April 2006) Percentage Grape: Grenache, Syrah, Carignan Growing Climate: In 1990 Marc Kreydenweiss converted to 100% biodynamic farming. Not only are the wines organically cultivated, without pesticides or commercial fertilizers, but the vineyard work is timed to the cycles of the sun, moon and stars. Farming in this manner not only enhances the health of the soils and increases disease-resistance of the vines, but the terroir character of each wine becomes increasingly defined. Vinification Method: The maceration lasts 2-15 days under controlled temperatures. Fermentation is left to start naturally with native yeasts. The wine is then aged in vats for a period of 10 months.
