Pale yellow color, intense fruity nose show the blending notes of lemon, white flowers, pineapple and yellow peach. The palate is remarkably fruity and severe; a salinity grows from the freshness of a wine for your thirsty. This wine is always a perfect companion for your informal meal, cold or hot entrée, fish or seafood.
This wine exclusively comes from vineyards of the Domain Marcel DEISS. It is produced every year from 13 Alsatian grapes, gowned and collected together, pressed and vinified with the biggest respect, the softest technology, and without oenological inputs. These grapes express the Alsatian plurality and we are happy to produce a wine telling our attachment to our landscape and traditions.
Our Bouzeron comes from vines situated on the best slopes of the appellations. We have planted to Bouzeron the golden Aligoté doré grape, which gives lowers yield and more aromatic wines than its cousin, the Aligoté vert.
True to its varietal nature, our Bouzeron is a liveley, fruity wine, but it also has a finesse and roundness that spring from the essential nature of the terroir.
These qualities lend it great versatility. To best appreciate the freshness and fruit, our Bouzeron would be drunk young, within two or three years. To allow the wine to fully develop fullness and "fatness", age it for up to ten years.
Our Bouzeron should be served chilled, at about 54°F, as an apéritif, with seafood, or with a number of cheeses (goat cheese, Cantal, Beaufort, Parmesan, Roquefort, etc.
The 2013 Faultline delivers an aroma of real depth and detail with characters of wet stones, lemon rind and wild herbs. Fennel and coriander seed combine with subtle citrus fruits on the palate, but where the Faultline really impresses is in its focused linear direction that culminates in a racy, chalky finish. Will reward with time in the cellar.
The Kooyong vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Tuerong, on Miocene sedimentary soils. Our wines are made from domain grown, handpicked grapes and aim to manifest terroir: the integration of our geology and soils with the macroclimate of our region, the mesoclimates of the various sites within our vineyard and the weather of the annual grape growing season. Our cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice.
