Domaine Specht 2008 Mandelberg Grand Cru Riesling (Alsace)

Soft and smooth, showing almonds, a touch of toast, the fruit calm, showing slowly in the riper texture of the wine. Acidity comes through as a final bite.

Domaine Specht 2012 Mandelberg Grand Cru Riesling (Alsace Grand Cru)

Still young and aromatic, this concentrated apple and pear flavored wine also has a strongly mineral character. It is laced with intense acidity that gives bite to the texture. It needs aging, so don’t drink before 2017.

Domaine Specht 2012 Pinot Gris (Alsace)

A medium-dry wine that is soft, fresh and full of apple and peach fruits. The acidity, surprisingly strong for a Pinot Gris, gives a fruity feel, suggesting structure while keeping it light. Not for aging, drink now.
