A classy dry white and typical of a fine Riesling - elegant fruit on the nose underpinned by mineral and slight 'petrol' aromas (the classical perfumed & 'stoney' oil trademarks when this grape develops in bottle), which broadens in the mouth yet the finish is crisp, steely and racy.
Grapes are selected from vineyards with diverse soils - limestone, granite, gravel, marl and sandstone - which impart different characters and styles to the overall blend, and harvested by hand and machine, depending on site. Produced 'traditionally' by winemaker Jean Michel Lihrmann - pneumatic pressing, temperature controlled fermentation, no finings and light filtration before bottling - all to preserve fruit and aromatic qualities and elegance. His philosophy is to make wines with good acidity and fruit balance. Suitable for vegetarians/vegans
Serve with entrees and hors d'oeuvres with delicate flavours, fresh seafood such as crab or bream and even light pork dishes, particularly with a creamy sauce.
