Domaine Brand & Fils - Ergersheim, Alsace
100% Sylvaner - 14% abv
If you love oxidized wines, then this Sylvaner is for you.
Just to break down the winemaking process. The tank was not filled all the way to the top with wine, which then caused a natural exposure to oxygen. It took 2 years for the wine to ferment and in the end, the layer of yeast (flor) protected the wine from oxidation. After five years of aging, it was then ready to be bottled.
Expect lots of nutty, honey, exotic fruits, and clean, flowing acidity on the palate with of course a powerful oxidative aroma and a rich golden colour in the glass.
This wine should be decanted before serving and lasts at least 4 days open.
Perfect with a hard cheese like Comtè or pairing it with a sweet dessert at your Christmas or Easter dinner.

€25.00These Grenache grapes are carefully selected from Philippe Brand’s friend’s biodynamic vineyard in the south of France. They are then taken back to Alsace where they have undergone semi carbonic maceration. When blended together, you get this concentrated cherries and sour plum mix, which is balanced by the prominent acidity. This wine suits anyone who enjoys a light red, berry explosion, with some additional depth of a skin contact orange wine.
€24.00This is an exciting wine made from Riesling that comes from the same vineyard plot, but grapes that were harvested in 2015 and 2017. Winemaker Philippe Brand decided to blend the 2 vintages together which evolved into this petrol nosed, medium-bodied, kiwi and rich honey melon wine. Beautifully balanced with the acidity and the fresh finish continuing to travel.
The name ‘Hobstar’ refers to a specific cut glass design dating back to the early years of the 20th Century. During this period, several cut glass crystal items were produced employing this unique Libbey design.
Originally designed for bar and restaurant use, we pour our Bloody Marys in these Hobstars in our lunchroom. They make a classic and robust addition to any home bar.
