Schaeffer Woerly, Le Vin en Rosé
A really unusual rosé featuring two aromatic white grape varieties that really make this wine mega fun to drink. Crunchy red fruits come from the Pinot Noir but amazing aromatics come from the white grapes, this is a must try!
Grapes: Muscat 25% Pinot Gris 25% Gewurztraminer 25% Pinot Noir 25%
Place: Alsace, France
Maxime Woerly farms 8 hectares within a 1 kilometre radius on the eastern slopes of the Vosges Mountains in Dambach-la-Ville.
Maxime's family have deep roots in this historic Alsatian village, farming here since 1557. Centuries later- after the Second World War- Maxime's grandfather decided to stop selling their harvest to local wine merchants; the first family bottling dates to 1947.
Organic conversion of their parcels on granite began in 2010 as Maxime returned home from his studies, more recently he's been experimenting with biodynamics and zero-input agriculture. He's particularly excited for the future as this winter his childhood friend joins him at the domaine, and the pair will begin their own biodynamic preparations for the next vintage.
