Cellar for up to 4 years. Serve chilled.

One of the most famous terroirs in all of Alsace, Engelgarten is planted on gravelly limestone soils which drain exceptionally well and are perfectly suited to the aromatic Muscat, Riesling, and Pinot Gris varieties. Jean Michel’s vineyard here is farmed organically and planted with old vines which give an extra intensity and depth to the character of the finished wine.

In the winery Jean Michel prefers to use a light touch, pressing the grapes slowly over a 12 hour period and using only wild yeasts for the fermentation. The young wine is then aged in ancient huge casks for a year to allow the personality of the blend to develop and the zingy acidity to soften slightly. Although ideal to drink now, this is a wine which will continue to develop and evolve if cellared over the next 5 years or so.

On the nose there are charming notes of soft white peaches, jasmine, and ripe tropical fruit while the first sip reveals plenty of mouthwatering freshness, a smooth texture, and lingering fruit flavours. As well as making a terrific aperitif, this delicious white wine also pairs well with white fish, fresh seafood, and spicy dishes like Asian curries, salads, and noodles.
