A fantastic Gerwürztraminer Vendanges Tardives, bursting with flavour and impressive complexity. It is a riot of fruit on the nose and palate: peach and apricot lead into the exoticism of ginger and lemongrass.  More info

This is a fantastic Gerwürztraminer Vendanges Tardives, bursting with flavour and complexity.

    The Kientzler family have been winemaking in Ribeauvillé for five generations, passing the domaine on from father to son, theirs is one the most well-regarded domaines in the region. The vineyard stretches over 14 hectares, including the villages of Ribeauvillé, Bergheim, Hunawihr and Riquewihr and is planted largely with old vines, as well as new stock selected from the most robust older specimens. In 2009 André Kientzler passed the reins of this domaine to his two sons, Thierry and Eric, who continue to produce a remarkable collection of wines.
