    Winemaker Notes

    Albert Herts' Riesling vineyard is oriented southeast and grows on marl and limestone soil. The resulting wine is dry and elegant. It will pair beautifully with seafood, fish and poultry.

    Albert Hertz, France
    Albert Hertz Winery Image
    Established in 1843, the estate is located on the edge of the city ramparts of Eguisheim – a historical place and one of France’s wine meccas. The art of wine making entails, among other things, to finding the best combinations between the variety of grape and the natural environment. The Albert Hertz estate proposes an extensive range of wines, with grape varieties like Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc, Muscat, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Noir.

    From 1982, the Albert Hertz estate gradually reduced, and then totally removed the use of fertilizers and chemicals. The soil, the vineyard and its whole environment were aligned with its philosophy: to produce authentic wines, which convey the grape variety as well as the place they come from, suing natural resources. Since 2007, Albert Hertz has crossed over to using biodynamic methods.

    With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

    The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

    Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsace Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

    Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsace wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.

    Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
