Schlumberger Riesling Saering Grand Cru Alsace 2017


Estimated delivery between June 25 and June 27.

Beautiful characterful, full bodied Riesling from the south east facing, lime and sandstone Searing Vineyard in Alsace, the driest region in France. This Riesling is bone dry with 0.59 grams of residual sugar per litre. All grapes were hand picked, whole bunch pressed and fermented with temperature control then aged on lees for eight months. This long aging on lees adds depth, weight and impressive smoothness to each sip of this superlative wine. 

This wine has great character, is made in small volumes and built to last, although it's so darned delicious right now that it may be hard to resist the urge to open.
