Paul Blanck Gewürztraminer Alsace 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinification: The juice is extracted with infinite care in our air-bag press. The slow, gentle pressing avoids crushing the stalks and pips. The must starts fermenting of its own accord thanks to the natural yeast present in the juice, and the fermentation generally lasts from 4 to 10 weeks. It is carried out in stainless-steel vats equipped with temperature control, a medium which maximises the expression of this variety's aromas. Elevage: Once the fermentation is finished, the wine has to be matured. This stage is essential, in order to fix its structure and aromas. As the wine matures, the tiny particules in suspension gradually sink to the bottom of the vat and form a deposit, which contributes richness. Tasting notes: Appearance: Pale straw yellow, tinged pale grey. Nose: Nicely intense floral aromas, with a subtle mineral touch. When swirled it projects spicy scents, and touches of almond and Granny Smith apple. Palate: Supple attack, generous on the palate with a long almond finish. A very fresh finale.
