The Mader domaine is a very small quantity, high quality wine producer based in the picture postcard village of Hunawihr in the middle of vineyards on the Route des Vins. The family own 9 hectares of vineyards, including prized holdings of vines in the famous ‘Rosacker’ Grand Cru vineyard and also now in the Grand cru Schl0ssberg. All vineyard work is carried out by hand and since 2005 their son Jerome is now running the estate having studied and gained a Diploma in Oenology. Since returning to the family estate Jerome has also converted all their vineyards to bio-dynamic viticulture.
2015 Review: The 2015 Gewurztraminer is sourced in the higher altitudes of Hunawihr from clay and limestone soils. It has a clear and fresh, pretty, precise and aromatic bouquet with some smoky aromas. Bottled with 33 grams of residual sugar, this is a round and semi-sweet Gewurz with good grip and some mineral characteristics. Drink 2018-2030. Rating: 88 Points; Stephan Reinhardt, RobertParker.com
