Meyer Fonne Gewurztraminer Grand Cru ‘Sporen’ is an expressive and complex wine which shows the true potential of the Gewurztraminer grape. The grapes are picked at full maturity to produce a rich and heady style with ripe stone fruit, syrup, honey, apricot, orange and lovely floral notes. It is intense and concentrated on the palate with a fruit salad array of flavours, a lush texture and spice notes on the finish. Top draw wine!

Domaine Meyer Fonne was founded in the late 1800’s by Felix Meyer and is still run today by Felix’s great grandson, also Felix. The Domaine now covers 12 hectares over 7 communes, namely Katzenthal, Ammerschwihr, Ingersheim, Riquewihr, Kientzheim, Colmar and Bennwihr. The diversity of soil type and vineyard exposure throughout these areas has meant that several different grape varieties can flourish. It is one of the world’s greatest examples of terroir and has led to Alsace being one of the most diverse grape growing regions in the world. The Domaine is organic in everything but name and Felix also uses a few Biodynamic techniques. Felix also prefers to use large, older foudres (wooden barrels) in conjunction with stainless steel vats for the more aromatic varieties. This gives the wines a delicacy and complexity which is unique to the area.
