GEWURZTRAMINER LETZENBERG - DOMAINE DE L'ENVOL
"Our generation of winegrowers is of diverse origins and sensibilities. To give our own interpretation of the Gewurztraminer of the 2020s, we conducted several tests and tastings on different terroirs in 2018 and found the sensation and coherence we were looking for on the last hill of the Munster valley called Letzenberg; which led to the creation of our Gewurztraminer Letzenber.
The Letzenberg (or "last hill") is a hill with a limestone terroir and a North-North-East orientation, which gave our 2019 vintage its bright freshness.
But there’s more... We wanted a dry and colourful Gewurztraminer so we opted for a week-long maceration of our grapes to combine the delicacy of the grape variety with the tension of a dry wine."
