Wolfberger Riesling Alsace Grand Cru Eichberg AOC
The Eichberg Grand Cru has southeast-facing slopes. This terroir, establishing the boundaries of Eguisheim, is made up of sedimentary limestone and chalk rocks and is rich in gravel. The Eichberg benefits from a dry, hot micro-climate. In fact, precipitation on this terroir is among the lowest in the Colmar region. Wines from this vineyard are made to last and are famous for their remarkable fruitiness and generosity, celebrating their fragrance and typicality.
Subtle and racy, with lots of fruit scents like citrus, or floral such as white dead-nettle or linden. Depending on the soil, the Riesling can have even more aromas.
The freshness revealed by its color is the first thing you notice in the mouth, followed by a marked fullness. As Vendanges Tardives or Sélection de Grains Nobles, they are the headiest of wines, with a touch of sweetness.
Perfect served with traditional Alsatian dishes such as sauerkraut, but also with fish and shellfish, thanks to their vivacity. The Riesling in Vendanges Tardives or Sélection de Grains Nobles is a perfect companion to desserts.
