Vinification of Gewurztraminer Terroirs Calcaires

Our winemaker follows with a special care the rules of the legislation of the Appellation Alsace. He controls the maturity in the selected plots until the harvest, which usually starts beginning or mid of September. The bunches are crushed in our pneumatic press on lowpressure programs. After fermentation and vinification, the wine stays many months on fine lies, in tank, in order to gain in structure, before bottling end of spring.
