Domaine Marcel Deiss Burg 2012

$120.00

Burg is one of Deiss’ most prized terroirs, with its south-facing aspect and multi-coloured Keuper marls and rare limestone insertions. Mainly planted with Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Muscat and Gerwürztraminer, Burg is a robust wine, complex and structured, with great ageing potential. The fruit is fermented in barrels using indigenous yeasts, and the wine is then matured in oak barrels on fine lees for 12 months. Each of these highly aromatic varieties gives the wine its extraordinary complexity and spiced notes with a hint of citrus peel. It makes an exquisite pairing with exotic, spiced dishes.
