Paul Ginglinger Gewurztraminer Wahlenbourg 2022

Type: White
Country: France
Region: Alsace
Grape Variety: 100% Gewurztraminer
Viticulture: Biodynamic | Certified Organic

Climate: Cool to moderate continental climate
Terroir: The Gewurztraminer Wahlenburgis a blend of different plots facing south and east on the localities Felsacker, Sundgass and Hissererweg, three predominantly limestone and marl soils giving a particularly tonic and sapid style to the Gewurztraminer
Winemaking: Manual harvest. Reception of the grapes with a gravity approach, long and gentle pneumatic pressing to select the best juices. The first juices with more lees are always discarded to preserve finesse, with ultra-rigorous monitoring of fermentations. Aged for 8 months in casks

Color: Golden yellow
Nose: The bouquet combines exotic fruits, citrus fruits, jasmine, mint, ginger, white pepper and cloves
Palate: On the palate, the generous flesh and crystalline acidity respond harmoniously. The finish is airy and “salivating”

About the Winery:
Domaine Paul Ginglinger is a family-owned estate located in Eguisheim, a fairytale village just south of Colmar with a long winemaking history. The village is dominated by two grand cru vineyards, Eichberg and Pfersigberg.

Founded in 1610, it is now in the hands of Michel Ginglinger, who represents the 13th generation of the family. The domaine covers 12 ha of vineyards planted to pinot noir, pinot blanc, gewürztraminer, riesling, pinot gris, muscat and sylvaner. The average vine age is 30 years.

The production is certified organic. Michel uses no chemical pesticides or mineral fertilisers, preferring to allow the plants to find their own equilibrium. The result is concentrated, balanced wines with great purity and terroir character from village wines up to the Grands Crus.
