About The Wine

The Meyers have been locals of Alsace since 1832. Almost two centuries on and five generations later, Felix Meyer is now in charge of the family winery, and has been since 1992.

These wines are considered some of the best value in France. The family owns holdings in some of the most sought-after vineyards of the region, having over 75% of their organic-farmed sites located on the prized sloped vineyards across seven communes in the region.

Felix crafts the wines with a level of precision and skill that has made him revered by his peers. He uses traditional methods, fermenting wild in a mixture of stainless steel and large format oak and allowing the wines a long time on lees before release.

The 'Reserve Riesling' comes from a selection of younger vines and a portion from some of their cru vineyards. 

It's dry, precise and showcases excellent extension of flavour. It's some of the best buying you will see from this famed wine-growing region.

Additional Info

From The Producer

This dry Alsace Riesling is always a superb wine for the price as it contains fruit from the younger vines from the estate (no purchased fruit), some from Grand Cru sources, particularly Wineck-Schlossberg. This year again it shows precise and very vibrant aromas of crisp bright citrus fruits and red apple with an attractive floral lift. Fresh and tactile, with a supple mouthfeel that glides into a sizzling finish. It finishes dry, saline, full and long. This is always a superb dry Riesling.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
