Schieferkopf Gewurztraminer 2018
Intense aromas of lychee and rose, with some lighter citrus notes. Nice balance of acidity with a dry finish.
In 2015 Schieferkopf decided to seek out new, outstanding terroirs. They made their most interesting discoveries on the other side of the Rhine, in Germany. Step one: the Baden wine region, recognized for its “German Grand Crus”. The discovery of this outstanding terroir of granitic origin with a number of south facing plots, has enabled Schieferkopf to produce a Riesling with a strong mineral character. Then, the Franken wine region, where a renewal of the Sylvaner (or “Silvaner” in German) is taking place. Records suggest its birth place was in Austria and it was implanted in Germany in 1665. Today, this grape variety is being rediscovered. Finally, the Pfalz wine region. This highly calcareous soil, situated in the second largest wine region in Germany, brings out the unique character of the
Gewurztraminer (“Gewürztraminer” in German). This noble grape variety has been growing in popularity in Germany in recent years.
