Tasting notes: This 2014 Grand Cru Steinert Riesling opens with
pleasant herbal and lemony aromas along with yellow stone fruit
flavors and a touch of honey and caramel. It is dull-bodied,
intense and juicy, with white nectarines and some dried and candied
fruit flavors on the palate. This dry, very mineral and firmly
structured wine has good sign for an excellent aging potential and
Pairing: This wine is ideal for dishes that require a dry yet
powerful wine. Try with sole, seabass or John Dory, in lemon or
beurre blanc sauce, or lobster.
Serve between 50 and 54°F.
Residual Sugar: 8 g/l

STEINERT literally refers to the stony nature of the terroir. It
lies opposite the Alsace plain, the Rhine and the Black Forest and
faces towards the rising sun. The hard, homogeneous, dry and
filtering soil sits directly on the oolithic limestone bedrock
which is partially visible on the surface. Oolites are small
spherical grains, shaped like fish eggs that were formed on the
surface of the rocks by marine microfossils.
Wines from the Steinert vineyards are characterized by their
powerful structure combined with a subtle finesse and underlying
