Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives 2018 75cl

Rich, ample Gewurztraminer !

Story

The vintage
The exceptional 2018 vintage will be remembered as much for its unusual weather as the care deployed in choosing the best harvest dates.
For the first time in Sipp Mack’s history, our harvest began in August with the Crémant grapes and finished 5 weeks later with the grapes for our late harvest wines! Patience was important as we micromanaged harvest dates to ensure the best grape quality. The challenge was successfully met, and the resulting wines are pure, refreshing and beautifully balanced.

A beautiful Gewurztraminer with roses and exotic notes. Full body and round textured with smoky power in the long finish.
Brilliant with foie gras or a honey-based dessert.
