Michel Nartz Riesling

This Riesling is planted on a sandy granitic soil. Every other row is planted with grass to increase the vigor of the vines. Hand harvest. A pneumatic press gently extracts the juice but none of the bitterness from the seeds and stems. Fermented in stainless steel with controlled temperatures. Unfined and gently filtered.

Michel Nartz is a family winery established in the picturesque and medieval village of Dambach-la-Ville. The family possess five sustainably farmed hectares divided into multiple small parcels all around the village of Dambach-la-Ville, but also in in the nearby villages of Scherwiller and Châtenois. They are very proud to have vineyards located in the heart of the Grand Cru Frankstein, one of the 51 Grand Crus in Alsace which has a particular granitic soil that gives an intense minerality to the wine. Today, Gaby & Michel Nartz, have decided to give the reins of the wine-making to Michel’s daughter, Laurence. She is a great winemaker, well known for her creativity and passion for the wine. She defines a great wine as the sum of small actions, from a respect for nature and its energies, to the development of the vineyards.
