Maturing

In stainless steel vat on fine lees for 3 months. 

Tasting

Colour: pale yellow colour with green tints.
Nose: floral notes (acacia) on the first nose, then the wine opens up and reveals fruitier notes (quince, peach). 
Palate: broad and supple on entry, with medium acidity. The palate is structured by aromatic freshness. Notes of white flowers on the finish.

This wine comes from the Sylvaner’s traditional region of production with writtings dated back from 1665. It is best appreciated with choucroute (sauerkraut) or a tarte flambée.
