Winemaker's Notes

On the nose, fine mineral fragrance with ginger, caraway seed, underripe pineapple and flowers. There are favors of white peach, quince and lemon on the palate with a lingering, clean and dry finish.

Served best with marinated, grilled, or sauced fish, and sushi. Delicious with traditional Alsace dishes like onion tarte, sauerkraut, and pork.

Critical Acclaim
Wine Enthusiast - "While this has a tight corset of freshness and structure, expressive notes of peach show their exuberance. The palate again reveals tautness, shot through with lemon purity while the peach delightfully plays around them."


James Suckling - "A tangy and flavorful white with sliced lemon and minerally character plus attractive phenolic texture. Full body. Real Alsace riesling."
