Sylvaner Rolly Gassmann 2020
While the winemaking history of the Rolly and Gassmann families in Alsace can be traced back to the 17th century, the Domaine was not established until 1967 when these two families were joined by marriage. Now run by second generation Pierre Gassmann, the domaine boasts 52 hectares in the Haut-Rhin region, 40 of which are in Rorschwihr and 10 in Bergheim.
The wine is a vibrant pale yellow, with delicate white flower and nutty aromas. On the palate, rich grapey flavours, bolstered by a touch of residual sugar, are balanced by a taut acidity and saline character. Approachable for drinking now, this wine will also keep for another decade or more.
This wine works well with poultry and seafood – try with grilled swordfish and asparagus. Cheese-wise this pairs well with Manchego.
