A backbone of estate grown Gewurztraminer is vinified alongside harvests from the best local growers. Fruit is picked by hand, off vines twenty five years of age, planted to clay and limestone soils in a dozen of the finest winegrowing precincts of Riquewihr. Grapes are taken in small tubs to a gravity filled press and filled without any pumping or mechanism to retain integrity of fruit. Juices are decanted for a few hours and fermented in temperature controlled barrels or vats at 18C to 24C. Upon completion, batches are racked and treated to a natural clarification throughout the course of winter. The assemblage is lightly filtered in spring, bottled and sent to the Hugel estate cellars for a term of ageing.
