Grape Variety: Riesling

Producer: Lucas Rieffel

Region: Mittelbergheim, Alsace, France

Wild Scale: 3/5

Certified Organic

Vegan friendly wine

Winemaking: Organic Riesling grapes from Grand Cru vineyards in Wiebelsberg were hand harvested and pressed into barrels. Fermented with indigenous yeast and aged in old Burgundy barrels for 3 years and 8 months.  Bottled with no fining, filtration and just a small amount of sulphur. Only 260 bottled produced.

This Wine: Top notch Riesling from one of the best spots in Alsace. Amazing intensity of preserved lemon and mineral flavours. Really shines alongside a seafood dish. Small amount of CO2 in the wine keeps things fresh. This is intentional from the winemaker. 

Notes on the Winemaker: Lucas Rieffel is situated in the area of Mittelbergheim, not far from another of our favourite producers, Jean-Pierre Rietsch. They are part of the same movement focussed on producing wines with minimal intervention and utilising techniques such as skin maceration in the winemaking process.
