Domaine Schlumberger is a historic producer in the region of Alsace, France and this gorgeous wine is from one of their Grand Cru vineyards.
Full-bodied and dry, with citrus fruits, (mandarin zest, lemon, crystallised orange), white flowers, smoky, flinty notes and spice (ginger).
Excellent paired with white pizzas, pork loin or pungent cheeses.
"Those who think of Riesling as light, delicate, and sweet have probably never experienced the Rieslings of Alsace. A sunny, dry region located on France’s border with Germany, Alsace is known for white wines. Its Rieslings often marry the opulence of all that sunshine with taut acidity and intense minerality In the mood for a bright refresher but have a friend who thinks that everything lighter than a California Chardonnay is thin? Alsatian Riesling is a game-changer."
