Domaine Kreydenweiss - Clos Rebgarten 2018
A superb little vineyard (0.1 ha) within a high walled Clos located literally in the center of the village of Andlau, surrounded by the town buildings. Very high mineral content in the soil, predominantly granitic sands, worked entirely by horse.
This Clos has been in the family for at least 7 generations, and has been biodynamic since the 1980s. Antoine replanted it to Gewürztraminer in 2008, and it is just beginning to give grapes of beautiful intensity, perfect for making a macerated wine. Very rare due to the small amount produced from this tiny site.
White floral and citrus aromatics with hints of spice and fresh tobacco, really elegant tannins and a long dry finish. Full bodied but fresh and complex and with really lovely aromatics. Definitely recommended.
