About the Wine
The Alsace region offers the perfect growing conditions for white grapes, particularly Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, and Muscat. Alsace is renowned for making not only prestige wines, but also ones of very good value.
After harvesting, the Willm Alsace Riesling grapes are pressed softly and then fermentation takes place over 4-6 weeks in stainless steel vats. The wine is then matured on its lees for two to three months, to add some texture.
The finished wine has a pale yellow colour with aromas of citrus and white flowers. With good acidity and length, it will complement meals of seafood, sushi, white meats, or cheeses.
