Precise quality management
This Gewurztraminer comes from the Pays d’Oc PGI. It is an aromatic, highly perfumed grape that gives wines with lychee and white fruit aromas. The Maison Castel team works with their long-term partners in the Gard's southern Cevennes, a cooler area where this variety has a particularly attractive expression.
Maison Castel know-how
This wine's unique profile is a result of the vinification process. The vines are at their peak and the winemaker's experience of working with them translates into more expressive, aromatic and complex wines. The Maison Castel team lets the grapes macerate on their skins for several hours to encourage aroma extraction, followed by fermentation in stainless steel tank to concentrate the primary aromas typical of this grape. Finally, the wine is aged on its lees. The result of these steps is a floral Gewurztraminer with notes of rose and lychee.
