Joseph Cattin Gewurztraminer - sustainable
The estate of Joseph Cattin is based in the heart of the Alsace vineyards at Voegtlinshoffen. Because the vineyards lie on the foothills of the Vosges, the altitude of the plots varies from 600 to 1200 feet above sea level. Most of them face the southeast and thus get maximum sunlight, which makes the grapes incomparably ripe and complex.
The Cattin family are of Swiss descent and trace their arrival in Alsace to around the year 1720. The family settled in the village of Voegtlinshoffen 10km south of the Alsatian wine capital of Colmar. The Domain is named for Joseph Cattin who was renowned for his pioneering work in grafting and is widely credited for saving some of Alsace's best vineyards from phylloxera.
100% Gewurztraminer. Very aromatic, this Gewürztraminer perfectly combines the typical fruitiness of the varietal with litchi and rose perfume with good acidity for a refreshing style.
