Jean-Baptiste Adam Gewürztraminer 2019 is full and aromatic. The nose is fragrant with a subtle perfume of roses, lychees and cinnamon. Full of captivating flavours of exotic tropical and stone fruits with a hint of Turkish delight develop on the palate. The tropical fruits are well balanced with a dry acidity, candied fruit and mineral nuances.
One of the oldest estates in Alsace, Jean-Baptiste Adam controls 19 hectares of organic vineyard in the Haut Rhin village of Ammerschwir. The granite slopes of Grand Cru ‘Kaefferkopf’ provide the backdrop to the village and produce the estate’s unforgettable wines. 400 years after founding, the estate remain in safe hands, guided by the 14th generation of the family. Their progressive stewardship has seen the introduction of biodynamic principals and a ‘non-interventionist’ regime in the cellar (a natural process of slow pressing, wild fermentations and no filtration) that ensures wonderfully expressive, clean and complex wines.
