The Alsace region is a thin strip of steep hillside vineyards which is located in northeast France. It is protected by the Vosges mountains to the west, Alsace is the driest region of France, a factor that compensates for the northerly location. Its wines were the first single varietals in France to be honoured with Appellation Controllée status 70 or more years ago. They are wines recognised for their rich aromatics and distinct character and are an ideal accompaniment with food
The clay and limestone soils around the medieval town of Riquewihr produce full aromatic Riesling with a subtle perfume of white flowers, green tea and mineral notes. Agape Riesling includes 90% harvested from Grand Cru vineyards, the quality of which is reflected in the complex and intense palate, youthful acidity and flinty mineral nuances that linger for a long time on the finish.
A perfect match for poached river fish including trout, pike or carp, chicken casserole, Asian cuisine, as well as strong mature cheeses.
