Dopff & Irion Domaine du Château de Riquewihr Les Sorcières Gewurztraminer 2012
Exclusively hand-harvested, the Gewurztraminer parcels at Domaines du Château de Riquewihr are nicknamed “Les sorcières” because legend has it, witches and women leading deemed unfit lifestyles were burned on these land in the Middle Age. The cuvee is bottled after a 4-month rest period on lees, after which a relaxation period of 9 to 24 months occurs in bottle before being released on the market. Rather deep golden yellow in colour, it offers dominant aromas of lychee, white peach, honeydew and rose.
