Details

The Gewurztraminer Tradition from the Albert Mann estate organic and packed substantial yet accessible flavours. This Gewurztraminer is ginger, lychee and spices, ideal for take away curry or for pairing with some home gastronomy when you go reaching into your spice rack and dust of the wok.

This well regarded Alsace domaine is run by two brothers, Maurice and Jacky Barthelmé in the village of Wettolsheim, near Colmar. Maurice, who took over here in 1984, is married to the daughter of the late Albert Mann who gave his name to the domaine. It’s not a huge operation: they have 22 hectares in all, but five of these are in five different Grand Cru vineyards and a further two are in lieux-dits. The Brothers work in tandem, one in vineyard and one in cellar. All is organic and natural although not biodynamic and the brothers also take a modern approach to wine making employing state of the art technology in the gleaming stainless cellar. These organic wines are clean as a whistle and very pure without a note of funkiness with direct fruit forward aromas and texture.
