Wines Of Alsace

Alsace Riesling

Among Alsace’s noble varieties, Riesling is the indisputable king. Elegant and dry, its aromas range from delicate fruit such as lemon, grapefruit, peach and pear to richer expressions such as stewed fruits, flowers and spices. Rieslings from Alsace have abundant freshness, opulence and a rich mid-palate, yet, their racy acidity keeps them exceptionally well-balanced.

Riesling pairs very well with goat cheeses, charcuterie, seafood, poultry and pork dishes, and most Asian cuisines. It is also known as the “quintessential Thanksgiving wine,” due to its extremely food-friendly character.
