Wine of France.This noble white wine is produced from grapes grown in the south-east facing Beblenheim commune in the pretty region of Alsace. Often referred to as the king of white grape varieties, Riesling has exceptional attributes that can produce exquisite white wines. Known for its floral, mineral character and racy, firm acidity, good Riesling has a lightness of touch and yet a very pervasive, precisely defined palate. Alsatian Rieslings have all this, coupled with a rich depth of flavour.

Layers of citrus fruit and a steely mineral backbone support the bright acidity right through to a long, ethereal finish.
