This small co-operative, founded in 1954, has 110 members and 200 hectares of vineyard in the Haut-Rhin, nine kilometres from Colmar.

 

Grapes for the Riesling Réserve are grown in vineyards running along the South and South-East facing hillside slopes of Hunawihr, at an altitude of 250-320 metres above sea level. The average age of the vines is over 25 years old.

 

Wine maker Nicolas Garde selected each parcel individually to ensure the best quality for this Réserve wine. The temperature controlled fermentation took place at around 17°C for three weeks with local Alsace yeasts. The wine was then aged on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks for three months before careful filtration. No malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place.

 

A bright and elegant straw yellow with delicate silver tints. The nose is nicely complex with citrus, pear and white flower notes.The palate shows lively attack and is rich in the aromas of the bouquet, especially citrus. A long-lasting wine with a refreshing finish.
