100% Riesling from the Cave Vinicole de Hunawihr.
A dry Riesling with a tiny bit of residual sugar (6-9g/l), initial lime or grapefruit zestiness is followed by a riper nose of stone fruit. The palate is light bodied, juicy and fruity, clean, bright with a zesty finish. This excellent white wine is very representative of the region and grape variety, easy to drink on its own or paired with prawn laksa or chili crab!
In 1954, Alsace was slowly recovering from a devastating World War II, and German occupation. That’s when a few wine makers of Hunawihr realized that they could all improve the quality of their production by working as a team. Blessed with amazing terroirs, the founding members spent their days working in the vines… and their nights constructing by hand the building, yet completely renovated, but still in use to this day.
50 years later, Cave Vinicole de Hunawihr ranks among the best : “La Revue du Vin de France” classified our cellar the 1st cooperative wine house in Alsace and the 3rd in France.
