Vinification:

The Weingarten de Rorschwihr vineyard is 8.6 ha and is situated in the North East of Rorschwihr. The name Weingarten means the “Wine Garden” and the terroir is called “marly-limy”. This type of soil consists of thick deposits of marl and calcareous pebbles more or less cemented together. They form a rock called conglomerate. This soil is rich in calcium which can be assimilated by the plants. The clay minerals help to fix other fertilizing elements. The soil is deep and has a medium water retention; it is calcium and magnesium rich. This is one of the most frequent terroirs in Alsace and also one of the best ones. This type of terroir gives a powerful structure, richness, spicy aromas and long life to its wines; Sylvaner does particularly well in this type of terroir.
