The first mention of the Château d’Orschwihr wines dates back to 16th century and relates to the sale of a barrel of wine to the Murbach Abbey. However wine is known to have been produced in the area as far back as the Roman period. Martin Hartmann turned the vineyards to commercial use in the 50s. His son, Hubert, took over in 1986 and increased the size of the vineyards from 6 to the present 25 hectares. Gautier is the latest in the family to continue the tradition and became responsible for running the family business after 5 years experience in 2011.
Take your time time to discover this golden yellow coloured wine which opens on white flowers and peach aromas with a hint of toasted bread. On the mouth, a frank and clear attack reveals a flexibility, some crispy fruity aromas and a touch candied fruits.
This wine is perfect with white meats, fish or seafood in sauce. It is particularly suited to fit scallop dishes.
