Tasting Notes

Bright, gold-tinged yellow. Perfumed aromas of superripe apricot, baked apple, mirabelle and white flowers. Bright, dense and juicy, with outstanding purity to the white stone fruit and ripe tropical fruit flavors. The finish is long, breezy and mineral. The Sylvaner grapes used to make this wine come from vines grown on the Zinnkoepflé grand cru (one of the two or three best sites in Alsace for the variety) on calcaire-rich soil. The vineyard's southeast exposure ensures that the Eminence grapes are always riper and richer in sugar than those of the Lutzeltal, so this is not an especially dry wine (18 g/l residual sugar nicely buffered by 6.21 g/l total acidity). The grapes used to make this wine are from 85-year-old-vines, and the depth and complexity contributed by such old vines is easy to taste.

TASTING NOTES

The 2015 Marsanne is a mouth-wateringly refreshing wine with an attractive bouquet of bright citrus fruits with a hint of lime. On the palate, zingy lemon and juicy grapefruit flavours lead to a racy finish. A perfect aperitif at the end of a long summer’s day.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Temptingly elegant bouquet of melon and pineapple-led fruit with pleasing wafts of hawthorn. The palate is balanced with well-gauged acidity rounded off by a lingering finish. One of the most food-flexible wines. Serve with vegetable veloutés and soups or fish.Armit Wines
