  • Tasting Notes

    • Soft, light yellow hue in the glass. On the nose, Alsace One is fresh and minerally, with light, fruity notes of lychee, hints of firestone and grass, paired with exotic aromas of pineapple and papaya. The palate follows with fresh fruit flavors; a dynamic acidity plays around the tongue. This balanced wine has a pleasantly light, racy body and a long spicy finish.

    “The rosy floral overtones of Muscat are very evident on the fragrant nose. The palate, on the other hand, gives us the texture of Pinot Gris and the freshness of Riesling while floral nuances hover and swirl. This is a lovely blend of all that Alsace does well. Friendly and fresh with a dry finish. Wilson Daniels Ltd.” — Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast
