Jean-Baptiste Adam Alsace Gewurtztraminer ‘Tradition’ 2012

£14.95

The marl and granite rich vineyard around the Haut Rhin town of Ammerschwir produces full aromatic Gewürztraminer. The nose is fragrant with a subtle perfume of roses, lychees and cinnamon. Full of captivating flavours of exotic tropical and stone fruits with a hint of Turkish delight develop on the palate. The tropical fruits are well balanced with a dry acidity, candied fruit and mineral nuances. J-B Adam is one of the oldest estates in Alsace, with 19 ha of organic vineyard in the Haut Rhin village of Ammerschwir. The granite slopes of Grand Cru ‘Kaefferkopf’ provide the backdrop to the village and produce the estate’s unforgettable wines. 400 years on, J-B Adam remains in safe family hands, guided by the 14th generation of Adams, Jean-Baptiste and his daughters Laure, Pauline and Marie. Their progressive stewardship has seen the introduction of biodynamic principals and a ‘non-interventionist’ regime in the cellar (a natural process of slow pressing, wild fermentations and no filtration) that ensures wonderfully expressive, clean and complex wines. 13% Abv 750ml
