Riesling Grand Cru "Frankstein," Manbach - 2019

Item # 27691 750mL

An Alsatian Grand Cru vineyard Riesling with meat on its bones. A pretty nose, sapid with peach blossom, gives way to an unctuous palate. This is a dry white wine, complex in its texture and balanced with a granite minerality.

Granite soils give this wine a great structure and minerality with flavors of ripe peach and apple. It's the perfect way to end a day of leaf peeping or apple picking.
