Schieferberg Riesling Achillee 2016
Owned and operated by the Dietrich family, Domaine de l’Achillée is an 18.5-hectare estate, farmed organically and biodynamically since 1999. The Schieferberg Riesling comes from a vineyard in the village of Reichsfeld which is planted on schist soils rarely found in Alsace. It is a powerful and focused style of dry Riesling with superb structure, bright acidity and intense minerality. 2016 was a superb vintage and this should drink well in youth but has formidable cellaring potential.
