Historique: 

First mentioned in 1250, the Saering plot escapes from the hill and extends like a peninsula on the plain, forming a sort of tongue of land in the form of a ring. It has been sold under its own since 1830.

Situation: 

To the north of Guebwiller, Saering faces east and south-east at an altitude of 260 to 300. Saering ‘marl/limestone/sandstone terroir brings out the best in this magnificent, fine, delicate Riesling.

Vinification: 

The grapes are hand-picked and whole bunches are pressed. There is static settling of the lees. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled tuns, followed by raising on the less for 8 months.

Dégustation: 

Golden yellow robe with green reflections making it radiant. The bright and clear appearance suggests a young wine.

 

The nose is at first slow, releasing a few notes of fresh citrus zest. After oxygenation, it then expresses its personality through aromas marked with fruits such as white peach flesh, completed with iodized fragrances bringing complexity.

 

On the palate, the onset is frank introducing a precise dry wine. Its freshness, tense and just right, creates the structure of this very pure wine. We discover the scent of jasmine flowers and the aromatic force of grapefruit flesh that then leads to an intense iodized salinity. Its finish of 7 to 8 caudalies is based on noble bitter notes revealing a saline finish.

A wine that can be decanted to bring out its full potential.

Gastronomie: 
  • Fish or shellfish with a generous sauce
  • Sole Meuniere or Lobster à l'américaine

Serve at 12°C.
