In the 19 th century, Riesling took a back seat to the Gewurttraminer in terms of respect and popularity. Times have changed, but this highly aromatic variety remains the archetype of Palatinate winemaking expression. This great-Grandfather of Pfalzer wine varieties exhibits the aromatic qualities that all great Pfalz wines yearn to achieve. It also is the standard bearer for our quest to produce pure vineyard flavours that highlight varietal character instead of neutral oak and over-processing.
Our Hare Label Gewurtztraminer is a lively, aromatic wine made from Gewurtztraminer, a traditional aromatic grape variety from the Pfalz region. The floral, aromatic qualities of our Hare Label Gewurtztraminer are sure to provide a unique wine tasting experience, whether you enjoy it as an aperitif, with a meal, or just on its own. Serve this wine slightly chilled, but not too cold, let the flavours speak for themselves.
Located in the small community of Grosskarlbach, Pfalz, Germany the Lingenfelder family has been producing wine for 13 generations. Owner and winemaker Rainer-Karl Lingenfelder takes a minimalist approach to winemaking indigenous yeasts are used, malolactic fermentation is blocked and he doesn’t fine nor stabilize his wines. Rainer uses a few large 100-year-old barrels to age some of his wines. These neutral barrels no longer impart any oak flavor but lend texture and a slight creaminess. He also uses some small barriques for the Spatburgunder. Most of the oak barrels are made with German oak. The 30 acre estate is planted with Riesling (40%), Spatburgunder (20%), Scheurebe (10%) with additional parcels of Muller Thurgau, Dornfelder, Silvaner, Kerner and Portugieser.
