In the bottle
Riesling has a fine and taut acid base produced from grapes harvested usually rather late. It develops aromas of flowers and fruit, green tea and fresh salt, and when it evolves, a beautiful smoky minerality. It is generally dry.
Pinot Gris is complex and rich, generous and with a good length, always with this beautiful freshness tied to the microclimate, allowing it to accept a slight over-ripeness.
Gewurztraminer is a little reserved with complex characters between fruitiness and floral when young. When evolving, there is a very elegant minerality. The body has beautiful intensity admirably balanced by the typical freshness of Steingrubler.
It’s a Grand Cru which stands out with its maturity and balance.
This terroir generally gets itself noticed by a fat and fleshy volume in the mouth. Which does not mean sweet. A dense and delicious concentration is admirably balanced by a generous and firm freshness which integrates into the mouthfeel. This acidity brings succulence to the fleshy matter and often expresses exotic, fresh or candied fruits. The length narrows down to subtle bitter notes which unveils delicious minerality.
Riesling offers a beautiful and refined aromatic pallet of candied citrus fruits whereas Gewurztraminer associates honey-like and candied fruits to its concentration.
