Pierre Sparr Schoenenbourg Riesling 2015

SKU 1738


Bright yellow hue, with fruity aromas of lemon peel, a touch of pear, lime blossom and flint. The full minerality appears in the palate, framed by a fresh lemony acid and a dynamic racy body. The long mineral/aromatic aftertaste indicates the age of these vines, forming the perfect finish for a charismatic Alsatian Riesling, which still has many years to develop its full potential.

Wine EnthusiastA fresh orange note dominates the nose of this exuberantly fruity wine. The palate is a fruity little number of more soft orange with hints of quince and pear peel, giving a tangy, textured and slightly earthy edge. The merest touch of residual sugar bolsters the fruit notes and adds extra playfulness. The finish is dry and zesty.
