Product Details

Meyer Fonne Riesling Grand Cru 'Wineck-Schlossberg' comes from grapes grown in a south facing vineyard which is made up of a crumbly granite known as ‘de Turckheim’. It is a pure and elegant expression of Riesling with a floral and spicy edge. Like all of Felix’s wines it has an amazing balance of weight, texture and mineral intensity which makes it complex, enticing and enthralling to drink.

Domaine Meyer Fonne was founded in the late 1800’s by Felix Meyer and is still run today by Felix’s great grandson, also Felix. The Domaine now covers 12 hectares over 7 communes, namely Katzenthal, Ammerschwihr, Ingersheim, Riquewihr, Kientzheim, Colmar and Bennwihr. The diversity of soil type and vineyard exposure throughout these areas has meant that several different grape varieties can flourish. It is one of the world’s greatest examples of terroir and has led to Alsace being one of the most diverse grape growing regions in the world. The Domaine is organic in everything but name and Felix also uses a few Biodynamic techniques. Felix also prefers to use large, older foudres (wooden barrels) in conjunction with stainless steel vats for the more aromatic varieties. This gives the wines a delicacy and complexity which is unique to the area.
