Gustave Lorentz Evidence Riesling

Alsace, France

750ml / 12.6% ABV

Certified Organic

Grape Variety: 100% Riesling

Firmly convinced of the need to preserve the environment, owner and winemaker, Georges Lorentz began the transition to organic viticulture in the early 2000s, becoming fully organic in 2009, converting all vineyards (33 hectares).

The organic certification, obtained in 2012, represents the recognition of the commitment to, and respect for, the organic process. All the wines of the Domain Gustave Lorentz, from the 2012 vintage, are stamped with the approved organic certification logo.

"The name EVIDENCE reflects the respect we have for the biodiversity in our vineyards, as evidenced by the return of game birds to our land, which has inspired this label. The feathers represent the wine’s finesse and balance, while also alluding to its wild and natural nature."

One can’t be a winemaker without passion and it was this passion that drove Charles Lorentz Senior to develop his vineyard on the slopes of the Altenberg near Bergheim, banking on its excellence. The grapes grown in this exceptional terroir have always been vinified separately. Riesling, Pinot-Gris, Gewurztraminer and other Muscats that originate on these slopes demonstrate from vintage to vintage a unique character. It was the continuing presence of this unique character that resulted in the vineyards being awarded the supreme accolade of ‘Grand Cru’ in 1983.

This Riesling has a yellow color, with an expressive and racy nose filled with citrus and white flower aromas (acacia, lemon flower). It has a lively attack, a lot of ripe citrus fruits, mineral, great structure and a clean, dry finish. A Riesling of great finesse, pure and of beautiful elegance.

Pairs perfectly with most dishes known for being from Alsace, all fish, shellfish, raw fish, lighter salads as well as goat cheese.
