The blend of varieties includes Bacchus, Ortega, Faber, Siegerrebe and Huxelrebe – all aromatic varieties that blend together to make a complex, fragrant and balanced dry white wine. No yeast is added because the grapes have yeast on their skins. The alcohol is 11.5% giving the wine a wonderful lightness and delicacy. 20% of the blend in was fermented in large foudres (massive oak casks traditionally used in Alsace) which gives the wine a really soft texture and smooth creamy structure – without making the wine taste of oak. This vintage is bottled wihout any filtration in order to preserve the character of the wine. It may show a very slight deposit in the bottle over time – this will not affect the taste and is quite normal for this style.
