Wine Details

Lieu-Dit Fels Riesling Sélections Parcellairés 2019 6x75cl

AOC Alsace

The nose is refined with mineral notes and citrus aromas and lemon. The palate is racy and nervous with a lot of minerality. The finale is on salty notes with a great length and a great texture.

Vineyards

Located in the village of Bernardvillé, just a short distance from one of the Compostelle routes, this plot’s vines are planted on the only strip of blue schist in Alsace, a unique subsoil that dates back to the Precambrian (over 542 million years ago). The plot’s shallow soils (20-30 cm) lend the wines their exceptional mineral structure. The gradient of the hillside (30%), its southeast exposure and its windy microclimate give the wine from the Fels vineyard its elegant, round and taut character.

Vintage

Cold spring with some frosts in April but hot weather in May and June allowed for a very healthy crop.

Winemaking

Vinification starts with a long pressing, then a static cold settling is carried out. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts. The wines from Domaine de Schieferkopf undergo full malolactic fermentation and are characterized by their late ripening terroir which enhances the complexity and round structure of our wines. The malolactic fermentation brings out the minerality from the blue schist terroir. The wine is aged for 15 months in big casks (foudres).
