Straw yellow in colour, this elegant wine shows notes of lemon and grapefruit on the nose. Aromatic hints of citrus are complemented by crisp acidity and a lively finish. This is a complex and zesty wine with great potential for bottle development.

The 5.6 hectare Rosacker Grand Cru vineyard is north of Hunawihr, a small village between Ribeauville and Riquewihr. This is also where the famous parcel of Clos St Hune is located. Cave de Hunawihr work with 12 different growers who together own 5 hectares of this Grand Cru.
