Fernand Engel’s office is located in Rorshwihr, but the domaine’s 160 hectares of vineyards are spread over 8 villages in Alsace. Here they can play with many different microclimates.
This wine is made from 100% sylvaner, almost 50 years old vines, handharvested. It’s spontaneously fermented and kept for 8 months on lees.
Renaissance Sylvaner Vieilles Vignes 2017 (Dom. Fernand Engel et Fils)
- Light yellow with greenish hint.
- Introvert at first, but the aroma opens with air and shows mature fruits, herbs and a nutty touch. Smooth, somewhat glyceric in the mouth (some 5g residual sugar), some citrus, herbs and crushed stone, and a good length.
Food: Light meat, tasty fish and shellfish, vegetables, try with Asian
