Tasting Notes

The grapes for Rolly Gassmann's Sylvaner Réserve Millésime come from parcels of vines planted on clay, marl and limestone soils in the commune of Rorschwihr, Alsace. All 21 different types of limestone known in the world can be found in the soils of this village, and the sub-soil there is similarly diverse. These soils, and the particular climate of the sites were discovered by the monks who first made wine here over 400 years ago, and today some of their methods are still used; vineyard activity is carried out based on the position of the moon and stars, with grape maturity and picking determined by the ripeness of the pips, as well as the skins. Organic and biodynamic practices are used to manage the vineyards, although they are not certified. Following four months fermentation the wine spent around two months on lees and was aged for a further eleven months before bottling. This Sylvaner is a vibrant pale yellow in colour with delicate white flower and nutty aromas. On the palate there are rich grapey flavours, bolstered by a touch of residual sugar and balanced by a taut acidity and saline character. Whilst approachable for drinking now, this wine will also keep for another decade or more.
