Anders Frederik Steen

You Can Only Have Me for So Long 2017/18


In a tiny cellar underneath his home in the village of Valvignères, Anders Frederik Steen’s creativity knows no bounds. This is a blend of half a barrel full of Gewurztraminer from 2017 and half a barrel full of Pinot Gris from 2018 from the Bannwarth family’s vineyards in Obermorschwihr. Heady with tropical fruit and wafts of spice, although the palate is dense, there is enough flesh and grip to tie everything together. Immense.
