|EAN:||Domaine Loew Elzas 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 - like the enthusiastic Etienne Loew - there is fortunately an 'Alsatian revival'. The oenologist who graduated in Dijon took over the wine business of his parents in Westhoffen in 2006, stopped the sale of grapes to the cooperative and switched to organic viticulture.
This distinguishes it from many other Alsatian producers who boost the harvest per vine to the maximum and compensate the loss of flavor concentration with residual sweetness. A lucky accident is that his father had planted vines on steep. 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 company with livestock 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 terroir speak as much as possible. This is one reason why he switched to biodynamic viticulture in 2009. The technical knowledge of 'oenologist' Etienne guarantees a pure vinification in the cellar and he belongs to one of the 'secret tips' of Alsace. The Riesling Muschelkalck comes from a vineyard with old vines planted on a surface with many fossils of shells (muscheln). Etienne Loew lets the grapes ferment for almost seven months. Very unusual among modern winemakers, but Etienne follows nature and the winter cold almost stops the fermentation. The result is a concentrated white wine.
