The 2015 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Spiegel presents a gold yellow color with silver tints. On the nose, an explosion of nutmeg and cinnamon aromas highlighted by exotic fruits notes. The palate is soft and round complemented by a refined acidity.

Ratings

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast. "A honeysuckle overtone mix with hints of ripe peach and zesty lemon on the nose. The off-dry palate strikes a balance between the poles of juicy, aromatic ripeness and lemon zestiness. This is a real mouthful of ripe peach, mandarin and lemon flavors, always perfumed with that honeysuckle streak".

Production Notes

To craft our Grands Crus, we use perfectly ripe and healthy grapes from carefully cultivated and selected vineyards. The yields are low and the vineyards are generally planted with old vines. For these wines we focus on terroir or vineyard expressions that influence the aromas, composition and true character of each Grand Cru.

Vineyard Notes

The 2015 vintage began with a very mild spring, followed by high temperatures in June and July. There were a few episodes of sever drough but overall the vintage was near perfect with excellent ripening on the vine. The wines from produced from this vineage showcase an exceptional balance of alcohol, residual sugar and acidity.
