Alsace Riesling shows an intense expression of white flowers followed by notes of citrus and stones. Straight, elegant, balanced with notes of citrus, a great acidity and a lovely minerality in the finish.
A great match with delicate white fish which requires an elegant wine to match its taste. Its fine acidity, combined with a dash of lemon zest, brings out the subtle flavours of shellfish while enhancing its salty quality. When fish and shellfish are cooked with a sauce or with cream, it brings a lightness which refreshes the palate.
The perfect pairing for goat’s or sheep’s milk cheeses.
The Simmler winery is located in the hearth of the village of Saint Hippolyte, in the Haut-Rhin region of Alsace in France. The house was probably built in 1768, but the date 1700 still appears on a older construction.
The passion for the profession of winegrower has been shared for several generations. It was his grandfather “Jules Simmler”, then his father “Maurice Simmler”, that the winemaking part took on its full importance, notably with the introduction of the Pinot Noir grape variety which made the reputation of the village with its famous wine : “Saint Hippolyte Rouge
The winery, now run by Nicolas SIMMLER, continues to develop, perpetuating the family tradition.
