The Domaine Ansen Geierstein Riesling comes from a remarkable south-facing hill that is just north of Westhoffen. The earth is so dense with limestone that the ground glows a yellow hue, and the rock strata actually moves in the opposite direction of the slope, thus channeling any water that comes in to the north, and away from the vines. This extremely dry vineyard has remarkably deep roots and always shows a gorgeous minerality and elegance in the finished wine from this special terroir.  Once hand-harvested, the whole bunches are gently pressed and naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks. After a light, single filtration, the wine was bottled in the spring after a 6-month rest, and then laid down for a few years to mature in bottle.  The result is nothing short of spectacular, expressive, and gorgeously linear. Bright crisp apples and lemon-lime are folded into pure minerality and lead to a very long finish of clean, mouth-watering acidity.  This Riesling will continue to age well for many years to come.
