Jérôme and Marie Neumeyer (Gérard’s children) exploit this vineyard of 16 hectares, located on the hills of the Grand Cru Bruderthal outside the town of Molsheim in the north of the Alsace region (north of Bas-Rhin).
Renowned since 1316 for its great vintage, which, at the time, was a credit to the tables of the powerful and mighty, the Bruderthal enjoys all the necessary geographical conditions to grow exceptional vines. Facing the southwest, the vineyard benefits from
the ideal amount of sunlight and excellent marly-limestone soil. Having been established here for generations, the Neumeyer family work their land in depth to draw out its finest expressions while also protecting the environment by practising organic growing methods. In some cuvées, such as the Grand Cru, the hand harvest used throughout the vineyard is itself preceded by a green harvest in order to limit the production.

Sourced from 18 year old vines from a single vineyard site in the Upper Wairau Valley. Hand-picked over two different passes to deliver a broader flavour spectrum, the grapes were then lightly whole bunch pressed and fermented at cool temperatures (7 degrees) to retain crisp fruit intensity. Fermentation was stopped when the sugar and acidity were perfectly balanced. The acidity, texture and minerality of this wine interplay harmoniously.
Aromas of honeydew melon and apricot kernel are mixed with an underlying touch of mandarin peel and lanolin.The palate is full of character, releasing juicy mandarin fruit with bright citrus and spicy undertones.
