Klevener de Heiligenstein

Specialty from the French Alsace who belongs to the group of wines in the appellation Alsace counts. The strong white wine is from the rare variety Savagnin Rose (variety Traminer ), here also referred to 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. In his honor a statue was erected in the village. It is an Alsatian novelty that the cultivation of a variety is limited to a single district. The vineyards cover 25 hectares of vineyards in the eponymous community and five neighboring villages. Well-known producers are the WG Cave Vinicole d'Andlau, Charles Boch and Jean-Paul Dock.
