Grape Variety: Riesling
Producer: Anna, Andre & Yann Durrmann
Region: Andlau, Alsace, France
Wild Scale: 4/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Organic Riesling grapes from Grand Cru vineyards were hand harvested. Direct press and fermentation in stainless steel with indigenous yeast and aged in large old barrels. No filtration, fining or added sulphur.
This Wine: Grand Cru Riesling from the slopes of Wiebelsberg which is close to the Crax hill and the edge of the Kastelberg Grand Cru plots. This is the most mineral driven of Yann's 3 Grand Crus and currently displays a lovely limey edge. Acidity is very high but balanced perfectly. Ready to drink but will get better with time. Should be served with food.
Notes on the Winemaker: The Durrmann family make wine in the village of Andlau on the slopes of Vosges mountains in Alsace. The vineyards have been organic since 1998 and sulphur free cuvees have been produced since 2007 after Yann (the son) took over running the winery.
