About Domaine Ansen Edelzwicker

Domaine Ansen Edelzwicker is the estate’s first vintage of a very old style of regional wine. Traditionally Edelzwicker is for easy, everyday consumption. Bottled in a 1-liter bottle so that restaurants could serve 2 half-liters from it in a carafe. Each winery’s style can differ. Domaine Ansen pulls from a couple of different small plots of old clay soils. This is an 80% Sylvaner and 20% Muscat blend. Natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The Sylvaner shows its fresh and acidic side. Aromatics of Muscat go with the fruit. After several months of rest, the wine is ready for immediate consumption. This Edelzwicker stays true to the style of an easy-going and fresh white.
In congruence with the Muscat grape’s intention, the nose is full of white flowers, ripe pears, and fresh peaches. This leads to a palate that is the complete opposite. In the mouth, there is tension and drive. Citrus, minerals, and lasting acidity. This wine is an enjoyable experience to drink.

Domaine Ansen

In the northernmost hills of the Alsace AOC of eastern France, Domaine Ansen has been a family of grape growers, fruit orchard farmers, cattle raisers, and all things in between for over 400 years. In the mid-nineties, Daniel Ansen set out to learn the trade of winemaking, spending time not only in Alsace, but also in Australia, the United States, and Bordeaux, where he went to enology school.

In 2010 he moved back into the old family house with his wife Karine and took over the fields from his father, looking forward to converting everything to organic viticulture, and starting to make wine from their grapes that had always gone to a local cooperative. Slowly expanding in Alsace’s diverse land, Daniel farms 8.5 hectares, in 40 plots (some are as small as 2 rows of vines), to 8 grape varieties, on 3 different soil types (black clay, limestone, and sandstone). Careful hand harvesting, the use of stainless steel for natural fermentation and aging, and very little (to zero) sulfite use in the finished wines, he lets each grape express its natural characteristics to the fullest, be it laser acidity, sweet ripe fruit, or a combination of both.
