"The nose offers lovely touches of stone, fern and white pepper, with the freshness of green apple. There is something pristine about this wine, something light, clear and utterly moreish. The finish is clean and dry."
Vinous Reverie Notes
The grapes for this Sylvaner come from a parcel planted some 30 years ago on the Altenberg, whence its name, Grand A. The young wine offers a cheerful fruity and floral character which with age gains in complexity and finesse to take on the typical character of the Altenberg, with its well-balanced acidity. The wine is clear and bright with yellow-green highlights. The nose is fresh and subtle with herbal and fruity notes of chives, elderberry and hawthorn. The mouth is lively and straight, with a good balance between fruit tannins and acidity, producing a refreshingly enjoyable persistence. The finish is marked by a slight bitterness that blends well into the wine's character and also citrus fruit that brings back the liveliness of the first impression. A remarkable Sylvaner for enjoying by itself or for drinking with fish and charcuterie, for example.
