Dopff et Irion Chateau de Riquewihr 'Les Sorcieres' Gewurztraminer 20 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The ‘Les Sorcieres’ is from Domaine Dopff et Irion’s, Chateau de Riquewihr range. This range is sourced from the historic 16th century chateau, once owned by the Counts of Wurtemberg. Made in accordance to very strict requirements and from the vineyards best parcels, this is a wine of great intensity and aromatic purity. ‘Les Sorcieres’ refers to a parcel of land where “witches” used to be burnt! Classic notes of rose petal and lychee are elevated by a distinctly smoky note. A richness of fruit on the palate is abundant with lychee notes. The palate is distinctly off-dry with a rounded mouthfeel, and a spicy long finish; a refined expression of this varietal. A perfect match for aromatic Thai dishes. Drink now until 2020.

Dopff & Irion:
Clustered around Riquewihr, the 27 hectare vineyard worked by Dopff & Irion is extremely well situated. The different types of soil and the varied climate means we are able to produce rich, powerful, complex wines.
