ABOUT THE WINE
Created in 1895 by wine-growers from the town of Ribeauvillé, the Cave de Ribeauvillé - the oldest such cooperative in France - is something of a pioneer in Alsace. Its members own portions of some of the finest vineyards in the region, and their plots contribute to their exceptional range of wines. The Grand Cru Osterberg envelopes the northern edge of the village of Ribeauvillé, with south-southeast-facing slopes rising to 350m. Riesling dominates the vineyard, but other noble Alsace grapes (Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer) are also included.

TASTING NOTES
Citrusy nose with notes of white peach and pear evolving towards flinty, gunpowder aromas. Very well balanced with a fresh, lively acidity which brings exceptional length to the wine. Expressive, elegant and complex.

FOOD PAIRING
Seafood; marinated salmon, sushi and scallops. Also excellent with white sauces and pasta.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The Cave de Ribeauvillé maintains a quality charter with its growers to ensure low yields and hand-picked grapes, giving winemaker Evelyne Dondelinger only the very finest fruit to work with.
