Pierre Frick Gewürztraminer Maceration 2019
The 2018 Frick Gewurstraminer Macération is from two parcels: Terroir Krottenfues, soil marno-gréseux, high on a slope above grand Cru Vorbourg, and from a limestone terroir below Grand Cru Steinert, facing due east. There was a ten-day whole-cluster maceration before pressing, the wine matured on its lees for six months in hundred year-old foudres and was bottled at the end of March 2019 with zero added SO2. The wine shows a bright and luminous orange tinted color and complex aromas or rose, cinnamon, cardamon, white pepper and orange zest. The wine is dry, ample and rich with discreet tannins and flavors of white fruits, citrus, rosewater, ginger, pepper, with a long spicy finish.
