Tasting notes Loew Alsace Riesling Muschelkalck
Spicy dry white wine from France with a spicy scent. The taste is fresh, powerful and refined. The wine with crustaceans and shellfish, but also delicious with fish dishes from the oven.
Thanks to producers - such as the inspired Etienne Loew - there is fortunately a 'Alsatian revival'. The oenologist who graduated in Dijon took over the winery from his parents in Westhoffen in 2006 and stopped selling grapes to the cooperative and switched to organic viticulture.
With this he distinguishes himself from many other Alsace producers who boost the harvest per vine to the maximum and compensate for the loss of taste concentration with residual sweetness. Luckily for an accident, his father had planted vines on steep slopes. Difficult to work slopes that were not even suitable for cheap mass production. They yielded too little to live on and that is why the domain was a mixed farm with animal husbandry and fruit production. Etienne firmly believes that the quality of the wine is 100% decided in the vineyard and his goal is to make the soil speak as much as possible. Partly for this reason, in 2009, he switched to biodynamic viticulture. The technical knowledge of 'oenologist' Etienne guarantees a pure vinification in the cellar and he is one of the 'secret tips' of Alsace. The Muschelkalck riesling comes from a vineyard with old vines that are planted on a surface with many fossil shells (muscheln). Etienne Loew makes the grapes ferment for almost seven months. Very unusual among modern winemakers, but Etienne follows nature and lets the winter cold virtually stop the fermentation. The result is a concentrated white wine.
