This wine also contains some de-classified Grand cru fruit from vines around 40 years old in the great Rosacker vineyard. The wine is a blend of several sites of mostly limestone based soil. It's a fine dry Riesling with texture and depth. Intense floral citrus aromas with mineral backing and wonderful acid backbone. - Importer Note
The Mader domaine is a very small quantity, high quality wine producer based in the picture postcard village of Hunawihr in the middle of vineyards on the Route des Vins.
The family own 9 hectares of vineyards, including prized holdings of vines in the famous 'Rosacker' Grand Cru vineyard and also now in the Grand cru Schl0ssberg. All vineyard work is carried out by hand and since 2005 their son Jerome is now running the estate having studied and gained a Diploma in Oenology. Since returning to the family estate Jerome has also converted all their vineyards to bio-dynamic viticulture.
Rieslings here are some of the few in Alsace produced in a classic fine dry style built to age. In exceptional years a tiny volume of late harvest 'Vendanges Tardive' Riesling is made in a similar fine, elegant style that ages superbly. Jerome is fanatical about quality so yields are kept very low and selections for all wines are very strict ensuring the highest quality. The entire range of wines from the Mader family taste true to their grape varieties and vineyard origins and all represent fantatsic value. - Importer Note
