l’Octavin La Cigogne Green Gewurztraminer/Pinot Gris 2020
This is a stunning, fresh, lively wine made from Gewurztraminer (50%) and Pinot Gris (50%) provided by Domaine Marc Humbrecht in Alsace who has been biodynamic for many years. Alice brought the gapes back to her winery in the Jura and then macerated the whole bunches for 5 weeks then the juice was left in tank until May 2021 when it was bottled.
This is an interesting and quite compelling wine as there are some tannins present as well as a little of that slight bitterness which makes a wine attractive. It shows tropical fruits on the nose and is a perfect wine for an aperitif or to accompany quite a wide range of foods.
