"Sauvage" Riesling

Gold color with light green hues. Expressive and floral nose with notes of honeysuckle and chamomile tea. The mouth is fresh and full with a fruity finish dominated by ripe citrus fruits.

Appellation

AOC Alsace

Vineyard

Parcels of clay-limestone are located in the heart of the Alsace vineyard, 10 km south of Colmar. Colmar is the capital of Alsace wines and one of the driest regions in France. The Alsace vineyard enjoys a unique location, between the Vosges Massif and the Black Forest, and a semi-continental climate. Located at an altitude of 300 meters, the soils are heavy, deep and well drained. The richness of the soil, combined with ideal exposure, enables the production of complex, rich and racy wines. Organic and vegan certified.

Vinification

Harvested by hand. Gentle pressing of the grapes in order to preserve the quality of the juice. Fermentation in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank between 3 weeks to 2 months. Then aging on the lees for 2 more months.

Pairing

Excellent as a pre-dinner drink and pairs well with vegetables, creamy cheeses, white meats and fishes. In Alsace this wine is traditionally served with Choucroute.
