In their winery at the edge of the compact medieval village of Eguisheim, Fabienne and Jean-Louis Mann produce a consistently excellent set of wines from the characteristic grapes of their Alsatian region. They have made wine from their 12-hectare family estate since 1998. Organic since 2004 (certified organic in 2008), they have since incorporated biodynamic practices into their farming as well. This 2019 sylvaner comes from 50+-year-old vines planted on granite, limestone, and sandstone. Harvested by hand and slowly pressed whole-bunch, it ferments with indigenous yeasts and ages on the lees for a year in stainless steel. Aromatic and expressive on the nose, it dances with crisp green apple and rich pineapple on the palate on a textural mineral foundation. Certified organic, low-intervention/natural, vegan.
