Alsace

Kientzler Riesling “Muhlforst” Alsace, France '18

A strong argument can be made that the Alsace region of France is THE premier region in the country for wines that pair well with many different styles of gastronomy.

Whether it is the richer pork-centric cuisine of the home region, spicy Asian-inspired dishes, the wines of Alsace have you covered!

Based in Ribeauvillé, this fifth generation winery owns 13.8 hectares of vines (including 4.4 of Grand Cru) spread across some of the most historic grape-growing villages of Alsace: Ribeauvillé, Bergheim, Hunawihr and Riquewihr. This vineyard is located in the village of Hunawihr, and the vines are planted in marl soil.

Kientzler only uses stainless steel at the winery. The resulting wine is always transparent, always focused on place.

The 2018 Muhlforst has a beautiful nose, showing a combination of citrus and orchard fruit, along with a floral and mineral edge. There is nice weight on the palate, allowing it to stand up to food. An extremely bright and delicious dry Riesling, that will keep you coming back glass after glass.
