Domaine Dirler-Cadé Grand Cru "Saering" Riesling 2014
A darling grape of sommeliers for years, Riesling still manages to elude many wine connoisseurs; its reputation for making sweeter, mass-produced grocery store wines comes at the expense of the innumerable cellar worthy and crazily food friendly styles out there.
Domaine Dirler-Cadé traces its roots in Alsace back to 1871, run today by Jean Dirler and Ludivine Cadé. A staggering half of all their holdings are in Grand Cru-rated vineyards. Completely biodynamic since 1998, they use a lunar farming schedule and natural preparations in the vineyards, such as "teas" made from horsetail, chamomile, valerian, willow, and other natural components with restorative and preventative properties.
Grand Cru dry Riesling, aged to perfection and will continue to evolve in bottle for another decade easily. Available only here and for less than $30...simply unheard of. Cheers!
