Emile Beyer Gewurtztraminer


Emile Beyer Gewurtztraminer

Emile Beyer is a family estate located in the heart of the Alsace wine region. The firm of Emile Beyer is under the guidance of Christian Beyer, who represents the 14th generation of the Beyer Family of wine growers in the charming village of Eguisheim, the birthplace and very heart of Alsace wine production. The region is a mosaic composed of chalky marl, sandstone and clay in varying proportions from one plot to the next. The vineyards benefit from the wealth of these diverse terroirs, which combined with the unique microclimate, enables the vine to reach its highest potential

A pneumatic pressing allows the juice to be extracted at very low pressures. Slow fermentation. Aging on fine lees for several months. Straw yellow color. The nose is exuberant with floral aromas of rose nuanced with orange blossom and spicy notes of ginger. The palate presents a nice roundness with a full and suave palate. The finish is elegant on spices with touches of black pepper.

Vinification and Élevage: The “tradition” bottlings are meant to be fresh and consumed young, and to express the true varietal character of the grapes of Alsace. The harvested grapes are pressed slowly and gently,
and the juices allowed to settle before a cool and long fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Aging continues in
the tank on the lees for several months.
