This pale yellow-hued Alsatian wine opens up with a nose of raw honey, stone fruit and almond. The palate is generous with a plethora of fruit (think: over-ripe pear, bruised peach) and florals. The finish surprises with a lemony touch and delicate saline minerals that make this a natural partner with asparagus dishes, oysters and even grilled cheese.
Domaine Marc Kreydenweiss is located in Andlau in the Alsace region, nestled on the foothills of the Vosges mountains. The winery has been functionally biodynamic since 1989 and production encompasses three Alsatian Grand Cru areas. Marc Kreydenweiss passed his passion for natural winemaking onto his children and since 2007, management of the vineyard has been led by his son Antoine, with a focus on highlighting the soul of the area’s terroir.
