Alsace – France
Fresh and crisp Riesling from one of Alsace’s major producers.
Fish – fatty, fish – lean, shellfish, sushi
LIVELY AND REFRESHING
In the glass, this Riesling appears lively and almost lemon yellow with lime green markings. The wine is fresh and crisp with an open scent of flowers, fruit and a little minerality – completely characteristic of a Riesling.
The wine has notes of pear, green apples, citrus, lime blossoms and fresh moss. Henri Ehrhart is a nice and classic Riesling, crisp and refreshing with a nice acidity.
Serve this Riesling as an aperitif, with seafood or fish – both raw, marinated or grilled. Henri Ehrhart Riesling is also a lovely choice for sushi.
Serving temperature: 8-10°C
Henri Ehrhart Riesling is made from the Riesling grape. It is believed that this white grape variety originates from the Oberrhein area in Germany. The grapes for Henri Ehrhart’s Riesling come from the family’s own fields, and the wine is made in their own winery and bottling plant in Ammerschwihr.
About the manufacturer
Henri Ehrhart is the only family-owned winery among the top 10 wineries in Alsace.
Maison Henri Ehrhart: In the 70s, Henri Ehrhart bought 4 hectares of vineyards around the small picturesque town of Ammerschwihr approx. 8 km. west of Colmar – the “capital” of Alsatian wines. Over the years, the family company has grown to be the fifth largest producer of Alsatian wines with 7 million bottles annually, and the company is today run by son Cyrille Ehrhart.
With their own winery and bottling plant in Ammerschwihr and with the very latest technology, the Ehrhart family has control over the quality of their wines and can bottle the wines at exactly the right time.
The Ehrhart family has a finger on both the French and international pulse, and the company is adept at adapting to consumers’ tastes in wine.
“We are dedicated to quality, food safety and customer satisfaction and we have the expertise to deliver high quality wines at reasonable prices with complete control over the entire manufacturing process” – says Cyrille Ehrhart. The company is IFS certified at “higher level”.
