Chateau de Riquewihr Riesling Grand Cru Schoenenbourg 2011
Chateau de Riquewihr Riesling Grand Cru Schoenenbourg, Dopff & Irion, 2011, Alsace, France
Grape variety, 100% Riesling, harvested by hand, on fine lees for four months with nine further months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
Dry. A bright, brilliant intense gold colour. On the nose, thin, intense, complex apricot fruits, yellow and white fruits, fine curry and saffron spices, ginger and candied zest, and a note of incense. An ample and chiselled palate that is harmonious yet lively and spicy on the finish.
A great pairing for chicken flavoured with ginger, fresh water fish in a creamy curry sauce and also goes well with swiss and blue cheeses.
