Klevener de Heiligenstein

Speciality from the French Alsace, which belongs to the group of wines in the Alsace appellation. The strong white wine is made from the rare Savagnin Rose (Traminer variety), also known here as Clavner, Klevner, Klevener de Heiligenstein or Savagnin Rose Non Musqué. The variety was introduced here in 1742 by Erhard Wantz, the mayor of Heiligenstein. A statue was erected in his honour in the village. It is a novelty in Alsace that the cultivation of a variety is limited to a single district. The vineyards cover 25 hectares of vineyards in the eponymous commune and five neighbouring villages. Well-known producers are the WG Cave Vinicole d'Andlau, Bestheim, Charles Boch and Jean-Paul Dock.
