Léon Beyer, ‘Réserve Personnelle’ Gewürztraminer

£22.00

Full-bodied and well-structured Gewürztraminer

Situated just outside the impressive medieval town of Eguisheim, the Beyer family have produced wine in these parts since 1580. The firm was formally founded in 1870 by Emile Beyer who was succeeded by a son and grandson, both named Léon Beyer and both mayors of Eguisheim in their day.

Hand-harvested grapes are pressed and allowed to ferment with indigenous yeasts in large oak barrels. Racking takes place prior to winter and the wine is bottled in the Spring, then cellared until the optimum release date.

Gewürztraminer is a classic Alsatian variety that polarises opinion, but this is a very fine example of the genre – spice, lychee, ginger, orange flavours. Powerful, seductive, and slightly sweet.
