100% Riesling that is aged for about 3 months on its lees, with bottling occurring about 10 months after the harvest. Pale golden yellow color with pleasant aromas of stone fruits, floral and citrus. On the palate flavors of peach, white flowers and citrus notes. Lively acidity, medium+ finish ending dry with floral, citrus and chalky mineral. Nice!

Solid especially for the price. Dry, citrus forward white with some minerality. Great with sushi.

Love Alsace. This wine is characterized by subtle balance. It’s not “too” anything, (sweet, acidic, dry, expensive, warm). This is a great feature when you want to focus on your food and need your wine to be the supporting cast, and not the diva.

Well, it’s Riesling, but straight-arrow simple: lemon, wet stone, bay leaf. 12% abv | $17.50

Dry with hints of sweetness. Great moderate Riesling.

Solid. Fairly steely/crisp, doesn't gain much with air or days open.
