Product Description

The Schlossberg hill is one the world's most authoritative Riesling vineyards. It rises north of Kaysersberg and Kientzheim and sits at an altitude of 230-350m. The quality of Schlossberg's granite rich soils was well known as early as the 15th century and it was the first vineyard in Alsace to receive the status of Grand Cru, in 1975. This wine is cropped from the highest vines that the Faller family own in the Schlossberg. Here the soils are shallow, rocky and mineral rich, typically yielding a tightly wound, citric wine. The 2012 is remarkably deep for this cuvee with layers of ripe apple, apricot, ground brown spice and orange rind notes. It's vibrant and deep with intense, mineral freshness despite the fruit. The finish is long and racy. 
 
"Features seamlessly integrated acidity and a fine mesh to the texture, allowing the smoke- and stone-tinged minerality to shine through. This elegant, mouthwatering Riesling is layered with green melon, apricot, salted almond, apple blossom and lemon wax flavors."
