About the Hocher Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Mandelberg Prestige 2017

The “almond hillside” generously collects the sun and offers subtle reflections. Its wines are distinguished by a breadth and balance that reflect the harmony of the place.
Horcher Grand Cru wines have been famous for more than a thousand years, others for a few decades, but all come from privileged terroirs where geology, climate and exposure form an exceptional harmony.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep golden yellow
Nose: Richly fruity nose with strong floral aromas and hint ofspices.
Palate: Flavours of spice accompany aromas of ripe fruit reminiscent of quince and mango. Rich, fat and well-balanced, this persistent wine ends with a very pleasant freshness. Perfect as an aperitif and also pairs well with spicy salads (Mexican, Moroccan, Indian), exotic recipes (strong, spicy, sweet/salty flavors), spring rolls, lamb tagine, tacos, langoustine skewers, Tahitian oven, foie gras and cheese.
Grape Varieties: 100% Gewurztraminer
Aging: Manual harvest, whole grape pressing. The must is cooled to 4°C to leave enough natural residual sugar. A very slow fermentation is made. Aging on lees for 4 months with stirring.

History of Horcher Family Estate

Located in the heart of Alsace between Riquewihr and Colmar, the Horcher family estate finds its passion in the vineyard and wine.

For four generations, wines have been produced with respect for the unique characteristics of the terroir. The vines are carefully tended to produce authentic wines. Each generation has worked to continue the tradition and create wines meant to be enjoyed in moments of pure pleasure.

The vineyard extends over six communes: Mittelwihr, Bennwihr, Riquewihr, Beblenheim, Ammerschwihr and Colmar. The property consists of more than 70 plots, due to the diverse soil types including calcareous, clay, marl, granite, and schist. These variations allow for a diverse range of wines with intense aromas.

Nature is respected through sustainable cultivation methods. Yields are controlled and the unique characteristics of the terroir are respected, contributing to the high quality of the wines. Soil health is maintained by alternating plowing with natural grassing, and manual labor is utilized to minimize the use of machinery in the vineyard. The grape variety is carefully chosen according to the terroir to ensure optimal quality and flavor in each plot.
