Cultivated and vinified by Claude Straub, Blienschwiller

Vineyard: 1-hectare parcel of 45 years old vines on granite and granitic sand, certified organic since 2016

Varieties: Pinot Auxerrois and a bit of Sylvaner

Making of: Grapes are hand-harvested, sorted in the vineyard and then gently pressed as whole bunches. The juice is then fermented over the winter with indigenous yeast and zero sulfur. Elevage for 8 months in fiberglass tanks, bottled with zero addition of sulfur (9ppm SO2 total). Unfined and unfiltered.

Personality: precise, elegant, vibrant. Ripe fruit (quinces, yellow apples) balanced by zesty acidity.
