SYLVANER
TART & FRESH and MINERAL
BIODYNAMIC FARMING
CRITIC SCORE 90+

Winemaker: Anne-Marie Schmitt and her sons, Julien and Bruno

Farming: Organic

Variety: Sylvaner

Terroir: Their village is located in the far northern part of the Bas Rhin province about 25 kilometers east of Strasbourg. Although not as picturesque as the quaint villages further south in the Haut Rhin, Bergbieten produces some of the most remarkable wines in all of Alsace. The soil is gravelly limestone.

Vinification: Indigenous yeast fermented, Stainless Steel Vat Fermented & Aged

Tasting Note: Now a perennial favorite, this Sylvaner cuvée, named after the first grandchild, comes from vines in the Glintzberg vineyard. It combines bracing acidity and minerality with just enough tropical fruit aromatics and the telltale tinge of herbaceous notes for which this varietal is famous. Very food friendly, it will show well with all fish and shellfish as well as spicy fare.
