  • Each vintage of Anders Frederik Steen wine is different, often with completely different wines produced each year, and often with wines that are held back years until Anders and his collaborator (and partner) Ann Bruun Blauert, feel that they are ready for release. On s'eloigne.. ..on s'approche means something like "We are moving away.. ..we are approaching". This complex and unique Gewürztraminer is best described by Anders: 

    "We wanted to wait for this wine to express something unexpected. For years it gave us only the obvious image of Gewürztraminer. Aromatic fruit as lychee, white peaches, and even jasmine flowers, but not really any elegance. But once the oxidation started to kick in, it changed the wine and gave it a new direction. It created a new structure and balance. The young fruit became light caramelized, the acidity and the saltiness meet in the oxidation and the wine itself went from having a young fluttering expression to an older and more serious structure. The wine is made in the same way as “Wear me like a flower” inspired by the wines from 2015: Two nights of oxidation of the juice which means that the juice is left in a big open container, for the sediments to fall and to start the fermentation in good way. Afterwards it has been fermenting 6 months outside in fiber tank, followed by 3 ½ years of fermentation and aging in 10 years old barriques." - Anders F Steen
