From: Alsace, France
Here we’ve got a wine made from old vines, which can provide concentration and power to the resulting wine. The average vine age is between 30-70 years. Coming from the Kreffzen vineyard in Scherwiller, which is where some of the most renowned grapes of Frey-Sohler are grown. Kreffzen’s soils highlight specific aromas of the individual grape varietals, the ripeness of the Riesling fruit and its maturity.
In terms of sweetness levels, 8 grams/liter is generally where residual sugar is perceptible on the palate. This bottling has close to 9 grams/liter of residual sugar, but the high levels of acidity in the grapes balance out the sugar to create a beautiful equilibrium.
Tasting Notes: A beautiful pale yellow color, with great clarity. This Riesling is fresh, structured, and refined. The palate reveals concentrated and ripe citrus at the core with juicy apricot and tangerine notes. It finishes on a refreshingly complex fruity note.
Pairing: Though you can absolutely pair this Riesling with fish and shellfish, or dishes featuring sauerkraut, which are traditional in Alsace, we think that this would be delicious with Banh Xeo (crispy stuffed rice pancakes).
