Dopff Au Moulin Grand Cru Riesling Schoenenbourg 

Wine growers since 1574, today, 3 generations manage the Dopff's estate: Pierre Dopff, the Managing Director, his son Pierre-Etienne, General Manager, and Etienne-Arnaud, Logistic and Development Manager. With more than 70 hectares of productive vineyard, Dopff 'Au Moulin' has become the most important domain in the heart of the best wine region. It is mainly situated around the little town of Riquewihr, on the south-facing slopes of the Schoenenbourg ('Belle cote'), excellent Riesling country. It has also extended towards Hunawihr, Mittelwihr, the Hardt of Colmar and as far as the Brand of Turckheim.

Vinification
Grapes have been pressed entirely without crushing. Static racking of the must was followed by a slow temperature controlled fermentation. Later the wine was stored in old oak casks on fine lees for several months.

Viticulture

Tasting Note
Fine, floral nose with ripe pineapple and tropical fruits on the full palate balanced by fresh acidity; very elegantly styled Riesling.
