Alsace Grand Cru Spiegel
It is located between Guebwiller and Bergholtz, south of the Alsace Wine Road.
This Grand Cru is located between Guebwiller and Bergholtz, south of the Alsace Wine Road, on a gentle slope of clay-sand soil covered with sandstone pebbles that provides satisfactory hydrating qualities. The reputation of the Spiegel Grand Cru dates to the 1950s, when viticulturists set up their own quality charters with precise requirements. Today they make original wines known for their delicate yet sometimes robust aromas, depending on the varietal. Riesling from this terroir has a reputation for raciness with a long finish, while the Gewurztraminer will be dryer with a more powerful nose, thanks to the floral notes and spicy fragrances.
Our Alsace Grand Cru Spiegel Wolfberger comes in one variety, GEWURZTRAMINER.
Did you know?
Spiegel means “mirror” in English. The Spiegel owes its name to its ability to capture the light of the rising sun (because of the quartz content in its sandstone pebbles) and to reflect it back to the vines all day long.
