Hunawihr Gewurztraminer Reserve 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This small co-operative covers just 185 hectares in the Haut-Rhin, 9km from Colmar. It was founded in 1955 and has 110 members. It was rated the best co-operative in Alsace, and third in the whole of France, by the Revue de Vins de France in 2005. Winemaker Nicolas Garde started at the Cave in 2004 and is now making increasingly high quality wines. The vineyards are planted with 21% Pinot Blanc, 20% Riesling, 16% Gewurtztraminer, 13% Pinot Gris and 9% Pinot Noir. This wine is bright straw in colour with elegant silver/gold tints. The nose is complex and well opened, fruity and delicate, with fine flavours of exotic fruits such as lychee and mango as well as hints of rose. On the palate this wine is rich and complex, with the fine flavours of the nose. The good level of acidity makes this wine almost dry, with a very long aftertaste rich in fine rose flavours.
