RIESLING
“TRADITION” 2019

DRY WINES

  • Appellation : PDO Alsace
  • Grapes : Riesling
  • Wine processing : stainless steel tank
  • Aging potential : 5-7 years
  • Serving temperature : 53°F
  • Goes well  with dishes and wines : cocktails, fish, shell fish, pies, choucroute (sauerkraut, sausages and pork)

As its name indicates, it is a more traditional Riesling, whose blended grapes originate from the heavy soils of the town’s lower part as well as the lighter ones from the Saint Hippolyte slopes.

It is a fruity, dry wine with a slight hint of sourness bringing to it a beautiful freshness.

Its white fruit aromas as well as its precision seduced the jury members of the independent wine growers’ wine contest in 2017 which awarded a gold medal to it.

It is the perfect representative of the Alsatian dry wine tradition.
