This wine was produced from fruit grown in the Moutere Hills.  The fruit was partially destemmed and soaked overnight on the skins to enhance the textures of the wine.
The juice was gently pressed under inert gas conditions, fermented with traditional yeast sourced from Alsace and aged in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting notes

Classic, mouth-watering aromas of lychee and hints of exotic spices
such as star anise and cardamom. Off-dry; a balance of citrus acidity
and phenolics create great length. Drink now or allow this wine to
mature and emerge gracefully from the cellar in 2014.
