Domaine Schoffit Riesling Harth 2020

Alsace, FranceBernhard Schoffit is a young pioneer in Alsace's Grand Cru Rangen de Thann. The domaine was started by Bernard's father Robert, with 10 hectares, 30 years ago, Bernard has embarked on an ambitious program of buying nearly 6.5 hectares of very steep land in Rangen, around the Clos St. Theobold, largely abandoned because it was too steep to work. Through much hard work, Bernhard reclaimed all 6.5 hectares. The lieu-dit Harth Riesling was certified organic from 2019, coming off 50 year old vines in Colmar. It was native fermented in stainless, where it remained until bottling. Fleshy pear, white peach is sculpted with lemon verbena, and rides a cushy mid palate of lees and tangerine, finishing with a saline and bitter citrus twist. Brisk, bright, and pleasant, this bone dry riesling is ready for cracking now.Tasted: 10 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
