Gewürztraminer, from 20-year-old vines with slate soil near Obermorschwihr. Work in the vineyard has been done according to biodynamic principles. 5 days of skin contact through a fermentation with whole bunches, without pumping or punch downs, to not shock the grapes too much. Then matured further in concrete. Full, lush orange wine, aromatic and energetic.
Farid Yahimi aka Sons of Wine is an organic négoçiant, based in Beblemheim, Alsace, who has a very distinct, young and wild style of winemaking. Unique to Alsace ... or even the world. He's not afraid to cross the border as he also makes a Verdejo-based wine from colleague Ismael Gozalo * Microbio wines! and a Pinot noir aged in a barrel under the Mediterranean for a year. His range is special, tasty and always very good.
