Soft fleshy fruit on a minerally backbone, this is a classy Alsace Sylvaner.
In the absence of a village classification in Alsace, the Boeckels use the term Midelberg to denote wines grown on the slopes of Mittelbergheim, in the family’s vineyards around their home village. Organically grown Sylvaner is manually harvested and allowed to settle on the lees, with a slow, temperature-controlled fermentation prior to gentle filtering, and maturation in century-old oak casks.
This is typically light, fruity and elegant, straw-gold in colour with a gentle perfume of white fruits, pear and crab apple, quince and honeysuckle. The palate is crisp and fresh, soft fleshy fruit on a minerally backbone, with a clean citrus frame and an elegant, lingering finish.
Serve with shellfish, white fish or chicken, or just enjoy on its own as an aperitif.
