Wolfberger
France - Alsace

Edelzwicker is a reminder of an old tradition of blending noble grapes. Nowadays each grape variety is harvested individually on the most suitable date for each vineyard.

Edelzwicker shows a pale yellow color with green highlights. The nose is expressive and offers fruity aromas of pear, white peach, lemon zest and floral notes. The palate is fresh and crip with citrus flavors. It is round and easy drinking with a clean finish.

Pairings

In Alsace it is served by the glass or in large jugs to partner regional specialties. In general Edelzwicker goes well with fresh salads, cold or warm starters, but also with oysters, mussels and seafood, pork meats, pies and fromage frais. It should always be served chilled.

bigger than your head logo 250"40% pinot blanc, 30% riesling, 15% gewurztraminer, 15% muscat. Looking for a terrific wine to pour at a party or reception? Here's just what you need. This blend of the chief grapes of Alsace is quite floral and pretty, fresh, clean and crisp; with notes of peach, pear and lime bolstered by lots of limestone minerality; fleet acidity keeps you going back for another sip. Very Good +."
