In the Glass
Brilliant, light golden color.
The nose is moderately intense offering scents of green apple and wild flowers with supporting notes of mineral and fresh herbs.
The palate confirms the nose delivering a green fruit-driven core with flavors of green melon and citrus. The finish is crisp and clean.
Intensity & Texture
Medium-bodied and nicely balanced with a vibrant texture.
We love Alsace wines and the charming and fresh white blends that are the real backbone of the wines consumed locally.
Selling in the low-teens this crisp and pleasing wine is priced in line with its contemporaries.
Created with a refreshing blend of 80% Sylvaner and 20% Pinot Blanc from Dopff & Irion's 200 selected vinegrowers. The finished wine was kept on its lees for four weeks and then matured in tanks for a period of six months. Fermented and rested in stainless steel to retain the fresh, crisp flavors. 87 points.
How to Enjoy
