Decanter:

"Orchard fruits, rose petal, plant sap and rosemary notes are woven through the powerful aromatic presence of this sandy-quartz-soiled lieu-dit wine from the village of Epfig. On the palate, this has dramatic, chewy, elemental impact, packed with seemingly ‘mineral’ force." September 2016

Wine Enthusiast:

"The faintest hints of smoke, apricot and honey hit the nose, while the palate of this wine shows balmy apricot notes but is otherwise still closed. A quiet harmony of fruit and freshness, body and weight already tells us that this needs time to show its true colors. The wine is is promising and elegant, tart and gentle, fresh and soothing. Right now it glides arrow-like across the palate. Give this time: drink 2028–2030." November 2016.

Product Description:

"This is a classical expression of a great terroir Riesling: refined, frank, elegant. The Fronholz has the specificity of giving a salty finish to the wines, whatever the grape is, due to the numerous mineral salts in its soil. This mouth-watering salinity makes it a great wine to pair with a large range of food. It has both Organic and Biodynamic certifications."-Winery
