2020 Andre Kientzler, Riesling, Ribeauvillé, Alsace

The Kientzler family represents everything we love from Alsace, it’s a family that has been growing vines for more than 5 generations in Ribeauvillé and the surrounding area. As early as 1866, Dominique Alphonse Kientzler had inherited vines from his father and grandfather and in 1895 was involved in the creation of France’s first winemaking cooperative in Ribeauvillé, in addition to running the local grocery shop.

Today, the Kientzlers farm almost 14ha of vines in Ribeauvillé, Bergheim, Hunawihr and Riquewihr, including significant parcels in the Grand Crus of Geisberg, Osterberg and Kirchberg. Since 2009, the 5th generation, Thierry and Eric, have taken over the daily operation and are making high quality wines year in, year out.

Why do we like it? 

This Riesling is a dry style with intense fruit of fresh lemon zest, white peach flavours and spicy undertones. It has the ripeness and power of Alsace but lots of freshness too, it's a great introduction to the style of the grape that can be found in the region made by the top producers.
