Gewurztraminer 2016, Rolly Gassman, Alsace, France

Lychee and rose aroma; a rich and luscious mouthful, sweet grapefruit marmalade. Despite the high sugar it has a clean finish, with more spice than sweetness


Tasting Notes - The Gewurztraminer, Rolly Gassmann, is a very expressive Gewurztraminer, with notes of jasmine and exotic fruits, leading to a complex and rich palate, lifted by a fresh saline finish. Clear and bright with yellow hints. A natural partner to lightly spiced Asian cooking – perfect with Chicken Korma for example.

Blend - Gewurztraminer 100%

Producer - While the winemaking history of the Rolly and Gassmann families in Alsace can be traced back to the 17th century, the Domaine was not established until 1967 when these two families were joined by marriage The family is known for their remarkable collection of vintages; they age and store up to five years’ worth of stock – around 1.5 million bottles – and only release wines that they feel are ready to drink. This particular vision led Pierre to create an impressive new winery, completed in 2019 and nicknamed ‘The Cathedral’ by the locals. This six-tier, state-of-the-art construction, built into the hillside, has brought their gravity-fed vinification facilities, cellar and panoramic tasting-room under one roof.
