Josmeyer Riesling Grand Cru Hengst, Alsace, France
Riesling Grand Cru Hengst is a dry, racy style White Wine with exotic fruit aromas and flavours and stony minerality. This particular wine pairs very well with sushi, fresh fish and goats cheese.
Josmeyer was founded in 1854 by restaurant owner Aloyse Meyer and has since passed through 5 generations of the Meyer family. Today the Domaine is one of the greatest in Alsace, run by sisters Celine and Isabelle, and is certified organic and biodynamic.
Josmeyers wines are of a delicate, elegant style, characterised by freshness, complexity and minerality. Grapes are harvested by hand, pressed as gently as possible to obtain the best juice, and then undergo a natural fermentation in 100 year-old casks in which they also undergo some lees ageing to provide extra texture and complexity.
The Hengst vineyard is on a slope at 360 metres elevation and the soil is a mixture of limestone, chalky marl and clay. This vineyard is responsible for fuller bodied wines that develop intense aromatics and richness with age.
