Cuvée: Vieilles Vignes
Producer: Philippe & Corinne Ehrhart http://www.domainesaintremy.com/
Variety: 100% Riesling
Philippe and Corinne Ehrhart are the current proprietors of this family-run domaine, which dates back to 1725. Located in the small village of Wettolsheim, about 5 km from Colmar, the estate is composed of 21 hectares of vineyards which are found in ten different communes.
The Ehrhart family committed themselves to organic farming two generations ago and the wines are currently all certified organic. The work is done mostly by family members, including Philippe’s father François and his son Florian. Each parcel is vinified separately upon harvest, and the wines rest on their lees for up to six months before bottling.
The Riesling Vieilles Vignes is made from 25 year-old vineyards located at the top of the slope above the commune of Eguisheim. This elegant wine has notes of lime blossom and zest, with beautiful acidity to balance the ripe citrus fruits.
