About the Wine
This organic white wine from Emile Beyer in Alsace. Wonderful fruit-driven flavours for rich seafood, tasty chicken or spicy pork dishes. Formed from primarily Gewürztraminer grapes, this wine is ethically produced, vegan and vegetarian friendly. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by Emile Beyer.
Gewürztraminer is a very distinctive aromatic variety. It's often full bodied, almost oily in texture with typical tasting notes of lychees and rose and can be spicy. Sometimes off-dry it can make a delightful wine match to Asian foods. However, high alcohol can be common and too much spice can clash.
Only deep rooting vines in living soil enable all the subtleties of a wine with a strong identity to be expressed. This is why the Emile Beyer winery believe that a commitment to organic winemaking is essential. The relationship between a wine and the environment that produces it is an intimate one. It’s as much about history and culture as geology and climate. They see the role of a winemaker as being a creator of emotion, revealing in the wine, the essence of its origin.
Most of France enjoyed a long, glorious warm summer, which set wineries up for a great 2018 vintage. A welcome relief from the previous one which was the smallest since World War II.Explore France
