Domaine Roland Schmitt, Thalberg Riesling 2018
Domaine Roland Schmitt
Great balance between ripe but pithy lime fruit and flinty mineral notes, the palate is rich and mouth-coating but with more than enough citrus zip acidity to be refreshing.
From 30-40yo vines lower down the hillside of Altenberg de Bergbieten and facing west. Fragments of gypsum can be clearly seen here weathered out on the surface. The harvest is manual and they work with natural yeasts for the fermentation.
The village of Bergbieten in the extreme north of Alsace, 25km west of Strasbourg, has only one single producer, the Schmitt family, who have been making wine from 10ha of vineyards since the early 17th century. The domaine is now run by brothers Julien and Bruno, in their early forties, with mother Anne-Marie officially retired but still helping out whenever she can. When Julien joined the domaine in 1999 he converted the domaine to organic viticulture.
