Notes about product
The south and south-east facing Ribeauvillé terroirs and Grand Crus of Geisberg and Osterberg which overlook the winery have been producing this wine for several generations.

The marl-limestone-sandstone and fossil-flecked Muschelkalk composition of the terroir, as well as the beautifully ripe grapes selected and harvested at the end of October lend this wine a remarkable personality.
A dry and powerful Riesling, underlined by a mineral note and firm ripe acidity. Pair with gourmet foods, fresh fish, caviar, and fine white meats.
