Domaine Henry Fuchs Riesling Hagel
Domaine Henry Fuchs is a 10 hectare organic estate in Ribeauvillé at the heart of Alsace. The soil is a combination of limestone and marl with the former contributing complex acidity to the wines and the latter providing power and drive. All grapes are hand harvested before gentle whole bunch pressing and fermentation with indigenous yeasts.
Hagel is a special cuvée from a rare Ribeauvillé parcel of Riesling growing in gneiss - very old decaying rock close to granite in composition. Fresh and pure on the nose with zesty lemon and white flowers notes. The palate is crystalline and delicate with lovely mineral notes and a chiseled, saline acidity.
