WOLFBERGER - Riesling - Alsace, France

WOLFBERGER - RIESLING SIGNATURE - Alsace AOC, FRANCE - 2015

With fresh notions of apple juice and fresh apple peel, this Riesling offers a good aromatic and refined intensity. While it has aromatic and citrus hints of lemon and grapefruit, the palate follows a straightforward and yet softer than expected experience of balance and a textured dryness that is very clean and almost taut.

VINEYARD

Vineyard info: Alsace wines are produced using the seven varietals of the Alsace AOC terroir: Sylvaner, Riesling, Muscat, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. Each varietal gives a different wine, ranging from dry whites to spicy, fruity whites to fruity red wines with low tannin content. The tracking, verifying and setting up of production rules, along with good growing practices, are an essential pillar of quality for Wolfberger wines. Technicians in the Wolfberger vineyards watch over quality optimization of 13,000 parcels, assuring traceability of all the grapes that are delivered during the harvest. To do this, each parcel is identified and indexed on an intranet file (varietal, planting date, grafting, etc) with tracking in real time of all the operations done by the winegrower (pruning, flowering, treatment, trellising, thinning out the leaves) and verification of the means used. This in-depth verification and tracking assures, at the base, optimal potential of the parcels.

Company info: The history of Wolfberger begins over a century ago. In 1902, winegrowers in the village of Eguisheim decided to join forces to create one of the first cooperatives in Alsace.

United as one, pioneers in their field, they are continually innovating in order to ensure the development of the cellar and to preserve the typicity and quality of their wines. They were among the first to launch the AOC Alsace Crémant under the name crowning their success: Wolfberger. Today Wolfberger is a major player in the Alsace wine landscape, in France and around the world.
