Steingold Riesling A.O.C. Alsace 2013

One 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 Riesling !

Tasting Notes

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.
