Dopff Au Moulin Gewurztraminer Brand de Turckheim 2017
Wine growers since 1574, today, 3 generations manage the Dopff's estate: Pierre Dopff, the Managing Director, his son Pierre-Etienne, General Manager, and Etienne-Arnaud, Logistic and Development Manager. With more than 70 hectares of productive vineyard, Dopff 'Au Moulin' has become the most important domain in the heart of the best wine region. It is mainly situated around the little town of Riquewihr, on the south-facing slopes of the Schoenenbourg ('Belle cote'), excellent Riesling country. It has also extended towards Hunawihr, Mittelwihr, the Hardt of Colmar and as far as the Brand of Turckheim.
Grapes have been pressed entirely without crushing. Static racking of the must was followed by a slow temperature controlled fermentation. Later the wine was stored in old oak casks with the fine lees for several months.
Lovely Gewurztraminer expression of spice and candied fruits with a full, fleshy and ripe fruit palate balanced by freshness giving great length. Quite superb.
