Riesling Steingold A.O.C. Alsace 2016
evening in December 2012 during a tasting of the year's vintage, a member of
the board of directors sampled two Grand Cru Rieslings on their own a Steinert
and o Goldert. Out of mere curiosity, he wanted to find out if a Riesling
version of Steingold could also be magical. He then mixed the two Grands Crus
together and tasted the blend, before inviting the other participants to the
same. Everyone agreed that this was the beginning to the new Steingold
12 % alc./vol.
Limestone and chalky-clay
Direct pneumatic pressing (vertical drains to obtain high quality juices), clarification, controlled fermentation temperatures, racking and maturing on fine lees for 4 months. Ageing in vats for 5 months before bottling.
Color : Pale golden with light green tints, shiny and limpid, thereby underscoring its freshness. Aromas : Highly refined and very expressive, it exhales citrus peel notes (mandarin), a bouquet of white flowers (hawthorn) and menthol verbena characteristics. On the palate: Its fresh and refined attack is followed by notes of pink grapefruit, pear and blood orange. The finish boasts long aromatic persistence, great balance and very good intensity.
This genuine gastronomic wine is perfect with a seafood platter, warm oysters or a filet of top quality fish and stir fry vegetables. It is the natural choice with fresh goat's cheese.
