ABOUT THE WINE
The Clos du Zahnacker has been the exclusive property of la Cave de Ribeauvillé since 1935, and is located in the heart of the Grand Cru Osterberg vineyard. Documents trace its origin to the 8th century; it bears the name of one of its first owners, a knight and monk, Martin Zahn, and is believed to have been a favoured wine of King Louis XIV. Today, the traditional grape varietals are still maintained, with Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer grown on the same small plot of land. The grapes are then pressed and vinified together, producing exceptional wines of great character and excellent ageing potential.

TASTING NOTES
Light golden colour. The nose is powerful, intense and complex, mixing the petrol notes of the Riesling, the smokiness of the Pinot Gris and the rose, acacia and spicy aromas of the Gewürztraminer. The mouth is full and well-structured with an explosion of citrus, peach and spices. The finish is long and very rich, yet dry. An exceptional wine for an exceptional terroir.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfect with sole, veal or roasted goose.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A superb, quintessential wine of Alsace, nuanced and beautifully balanced - a singular experience, not to be missed.
