Product Description

Composition: This semi-sweet white wine is made from 100% Riesling.

The soil is granitic and has southern exposure.

Tasting Notes: This wine has a pale yellow color with intense notes of citrus fruit dominated by lime and balanced by an incredible freshness. After a light aeration, the minerality takes over. On the palate, there is more citrus fruit flavor and minerality. With bottle age, the wine will acquire a typical mineral nose reminiscent of gunflint.

Pairing: This Riesling will be perfect with fish, or with the traditional “Choucroute” (sauerkraut and sausages).

Winery: J. Fritsch

Vignerons from several generations, the J. Fritsch estate is located in Kientzheim, in the heart of Alsace. It is on this terrior of great geological diversity where they cultivate 40 different blocks of vines. Half of their vines are located in the prestigious terrior of Grand Cru Schlossberg, Furstentum and Lieu-dit ("place called") Altenberg.

 Out of respect for nature, J. Fritsch uses sustainable practices in vineyard management. The harvest is exclusively handpicked and the harvest dates are decided from grape samplings to ensure the peak of ripeness and thus the best quality wines.

 J. Fritsch is proud of their quality control throughout the entire management of the vineyards, from processing the grapes to ensuring the highest quality of wines they produce.

Wolfberger Cremant d' Alsace Brut

Wolfberger Cremant d Alsace Brut NV is made with 90 % Pinot Blanc, 10% Pinot Auxerrois.

The production of sparkling wine was already known in Alsace in the early 1900's. The Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (A.O.C.) Crémant d’Alsace began with an official decree in August 1976.
 
Pale golden color. Fine, persistent bubbles. Floral nose with a hint of spiciness, gentle fruitiness (peach, apricot), and lovely balance. Fruity and lively in the palate, it has a clean and crisp finish. This wine will suit any special occasion.


Review:

"Clean, poised, rounded notes of ripe, red-cheeked apples play on every front. There is something joyous and bountiful here. The frothy mousse accentuates the light-hearted but generous aspect on the dry but rounded palate, which also brings ample refreshment.- Anne Krebiehl, MW"

"This bargain bubbly bursts with bright red-fruit flavors and scintillating acidity. It punches well above its price, with nice depth and complexity. ABV: 12 percent. - Dave McIntyre"

- Washington Post ("Bottled poetry, plus 4 other wines to ring in 2016", December 26th 2015), ** 1/2

"Made the traditional method, this 90/10 blend of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Auxerrois from the Alsace with a minimum of 12 months on the lees. Showing apple and shortbread on the nose, this Crémant has a lovely creamy, textured mouth feel and firm acidity that combine to offer unusual drinking pleasure in a wine of this price. If you’re trying to decide whether to buy a Prosecco or spend a few more dollars for this wine, I’d say go for it!"

Le Sang des Cailloux Vacqueyras Cuvee Lopy 2014

One of the best properties in the appellation of Vacqueyras, and certainly the bestnamed, Le Sang des Cailloux is located on the limestone escarpment which divides the villages of Vacqueyras and Sarrians. The idiosyncrasy betrayed by Serge Férigoule handle-bar moustache reveals an approach to winemaking which is as individual as it is successful.

Vinterra Sauvignon Blanc 2018

The Vinterra Sauvignon Blanc is produced from grapes grown on our Rowley Crescent, Sandy Creek and Stoney Range vineyards that are situated at either end of Rapaura Road in heart of Marlborough.

The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and transported to the winery for immediate processing. The juice was settled after a gentle pressing then racked to fermentation. The juice was inoculated with yeast and cool fermented for an average of 17 days. Following two months of lees contact the wine was blended, lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.

The Vinterra Sauvignon Blanc displays abundant aromas of gooseberries and tropical fruits on the nose. The palate is fresh and lively showing rich concentration and a long lingering finish. A wine to be enjoyed over the next two to three years. Pairs well with white meat and fish dishes, and also makes a great aperitif.
