Gewürztraminer

D.O. Somontano

Grapes: Gewürztraminer.

Wine-making: The grapes arrived at the winery in perfect condition and at optimum ripeness. After destemming and light crushing the grapes were introduced into a pneumatic press where they remained for five hours to optimize “skin contact”. Once the solid residues had been removed by natural decantation at 8 ºC, the clean must underwent fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 15 ºC using carefully selected yeast of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae genus (Prise de Mouse). Once the fermentation had finished the wine was clarified with bentonite and stabilized at -5 ºC to eliminate the excess potassium bitartrate.

Tasting Notes: Gewürztraminer, a masterpiece of central European winemaking, is perfectly adapted to conditions in the Enate vineyards. It presents distinctive characteristics as suggested in its name; the German word “würzig” meaning aromatic. Its aromatic range is wide and exuberant, packed with honeyed and floral notes. On the palate it is unctuous and velvety and aromas of rose and spice stand out. The tasting experience is rounded off with a sensation of silkiness and a mouth-filling finish.

Pairing: Perfect as appetizer. Pairs perfectly with strong cheeses, fruit salad and exotic food.

Alcohol: 14,5%.
