Riesling 2012 Sommerberg, Grand Cru, Alsace, Biecher & Schaal
The Biecher family have been making wines in Alsace since 1776. Their wines follow the Alsace style, which have helped cement their position as one of the leading producers in the region. While tradition is an important element to their winemaking, the cellar at Jean Biecher et Fils hasn't been left in the 18th Century. They have worked tirelessly to keep their production means at the cutting edge of modern technology. The advances in technology at their cellar has meant the family have been able to focus on improvements in the vineyard with a number of their wines being produced from plots that have been certified Organic. The family believes in responsible winemaking from vineyard to cellar and the most efficient way they are able to reduce their environmental impact is through responsible farming of their grapes. Sommerberg is reputed one the greatest grand Cru vineyards of Alsace, documented as having produced some of the region's finest wines since the year 1214. From old vines on the steepest part of the Grand Cru. The granite soils give the wine an intense lime flavor and a touch of honey. Bone dry, the balanced acids give complexity and length. The grapes are all picked by hand and carefully sorted. After decantation at low temperature, the juice starts a long alcoholic fermentation that can take up to 4 months. The wine is dry, with an intense minerally nose with complex lime fruit, a touch of honey and some spice. Rich but bone dry palate with lovely mineral extract and intensity. Quite tight with good acid structure; good potential for development.
