Franz Haas Gewürztraminer 2018
The Gewürztraminer vines are all cultivated with the Guyot method. They are grown on deep and clay soil with a significant presence of pebbles and stones at altitudes between 350 and 650 meters facing south-west.
The must, after a short period of maceration (skin contact), is fermented at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks. Afterwards the wine ages on its yeasts with frequent battonage (keeping the yeast in suspension) for about six months before bottling.
The Gewürztraminer has an intense, golden yellow color with a deep bouquet of complex aromas such as lychee, orange peel, cloves, nutmeg and rose. The wine needs rest for a few moments in the glass to fully express at its best. The palate is full and stimulating thanks to its structure, freshness and vivacity, with a slightly bitter and persistent final note. The Gewürztraminer achieves its complete evolution only after several months of aging in the bottle.
The wine combines perfectly with liver pâtés, white grilled meats, crustaceans as well as numerous Asian dishes
