"The lift of ripe but tart red cherry defines the nose and carries straight onto the palate where this fruit meets freshness and poise. The red-fruit core is surrounded by a crunchy but fine web of tannins scented with conifer. It's an elegant and fresh-faced wine."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Situated at the edge of the Alsace wine route, the Schoenheitz vineyards are entirely concentrated on the steep slopes of the magnificent Munster Valley, at the beginning of the Vosges Mountains. The slopes boast the highest vineyard in Alsace. They are sometimes so steep that no tractor can work them. Granitic soils and extreme vine growing conditions develop pure and fine expression of the noble grapes varieties of Alsace. The highest elevation vineyards in Alsace with lovely acidity. Wihr-au-Val was completely destroyed along with its vineyards in WWII, and most of the vintners left, but Henris father restored the vineyards and these unique wines from the Munster Valley survive.
