About the Wine

There’s more to these wines than just exceptional taste. Albert Seltz is deeply dedicated to environmental preservation. They champion sustainable viticultural practices, promoting biodiversity and respecting the natural world around them.

The story of Albert Seltz begins in Alsace. This region has seen centuries of change, from wine-growing villages in the 13th century to wars and shifting borders. It's a place where history and tradition intersect, shaping the character of the wines produced here.

Albert Seltz, the Alsatian-American winemaker, embodies a passion for crafting remarkable wines. His philosophy is clear: elevate the grapes to greatness and create terroir-driven wines that exude salinity, ensuring longevity and culinary compatibility.

This wine is crafted from 100% Riesling grapes sourced from 40-year-old vines grown on clay and limestone soil. It's vinified with the utmost care and minimal intervention, ensuring that the essence of the grapes shines through in every sip.

Pair this outstanding Riesling with fish steaks or pie, lighter pastry-based dishes, goat cheese, Tommes, and even bold cheeses like Vacherin.

Tasting Notes: 100% Riesling. Dry, medium-bodied Riesling delights the senses with a fresh citrus and green apple bouquet. On the palate, you'll discover riper lemon, apple, and pear flavors, along with the classic varietal characteristics that make Riesling so exceptional. It boasts a fine crisp acidity, excellent minerality, and a clean finish.
