GRENACHE NOIR 80%, SYRAH 20%
Brambly fruit underpinned by subtle oaky nuances, lovely sweet spice; warm star anise with a touch of cinnamon. This classic Côtes du Rhône Villages is enriched with specially-selected parcels from the cru vineyards of Séguret, Sablet and Cairanne.
The southern Rhone offers a huge selection of grapes to blend from and this is no exception, however the core elements of Grenache Blanc (Bringing acidity along with apple, citrus and greener notes) goes in with a good dose of Viognier (Bringing nutmeggy, spiced aromatics and body) and a touch of Roussanne to finish (Body, texture and further aroma). Mid weight and very food friendly.
Their gewurztraminer is especially richly textured with just the right amount of spice. It is also extremely good value. Renée and Bruno’s son François Sorg is now in charge, making lovely gewurz, all tropical fruit flavours with a little sweetness and some freshness too.
Bruno Sorg is the estate, they are based in Alsace in eastern France. Although northerly, Alsace is a warm, dry region, protected from the weather by the Vosges mountains. This particular wine in made from the Gewurztraminer grape. Gewurztraminer refers to spice garden. It can often feel like it is off dry, really floral on the nose and quite rich for a white wine, which holds up to spicy food really well.
Delightfully lively and fresh, it would be especially good with asparagus and shellfish. Drink young.
