Willm Alsace Riesling 750mL
Bronze Medal International Wine Challenge 2020
The Riesling is the King of Alsace and among the world’s greatest grapes. The juice is white and the wines are dry, racy with great definition of the fruit. Grown on mineral soils, it expresses floral and mineral character offering great ageing potential. In Alsace, Riesling acquires distinctive concentration perfectly balanced by the acidity
2019: Steady rainfall during spring encouraged moderate growth of the vines from mid-April. The dry period in July would not cause any damage to the grapes protected by the dense canopy of springtime leaves. The life-giving heavy rainfall at the beginning of August and the modest quantity of grapes hastened the harvest. Small bunches, rich in aromatic compounds with very litte juice produced fresh and expressive wines with beautiful balanced acidities and perfect sugar content. A fine vintage, to compare to 2017 and 2010.
