Bruno Sorg, Gewürztraminer 2020
- Bottle Size
- Wine Type
Domaine Bruno Sorg is the source of some of the finest, richest and most concentrated wines in Alsace. Superb Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris and perhaps the finest Muscat in Alsace, but also home to great Riesling.
The late Bruno and his son François realised a dream 10 years ago with the final purchase of a plot of steep ‘garrigue’ in the heart of the Grand Cru Pfersigberg. They now have amassed 1½ hectares in one plot. Bruno had secretly been buying parcels of this land for the last 30 years. Much hard work was necessary, in clearing the forest and then terracing the steep slopes.
This great vineyard is planted with Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris and the fruit was used for the first time in 2004. In 2004 François Sorg built a temperature controlled winery just outside the village. They practice sustainable agriculture, or lutte raisonnée, with the objective of preserving the nature around them and the health of their land, soils and vineyards.
This wine has a classic Gewurztraminer nose – aromatic with rose petal, lychee and Turkish delight. On the palate it’s off-dry, with medium acidity – a great pairing for Asian food, especially a Thai meal.
