Domaine Fleith Riesling Steinweg 2018

Alsace, FranceIn 1996, Vincent Fleith took over his family's 9 hectares, becoming the 11th generation of winegrowers to caretake these lands. He converted the estate to biodynamics over the next years. This comes off Steinweg's alluvial granite soils. This golden yellow wine starts off with a lure of flinty reduction, leading into savoury pear skin, yellow apple, and a firm granitic grip rasping the sides. Bone dry, the finish lingers with crushed rocks and apricot blossoms. Drinking very smartly now.Tasted: 16 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
