Petite's notes: A skin-contact riesling from Alsace - dry riesling drinkers rejoice! Ripping acidity, flinty minerality. These descriptors don't do it justice. Pour yourself a glass and experience one of the best expressions from Alsace's pioneer in skin contact and natural winemaking, Jean Pierre Rietsch. 

Stein is the vineyard attached to the winery, this riesling is planted on clay limestone (oolithique), southern exposure. 1/3 whole cluster, 2/3 direct press - 15 day maceration (which brought refreshing bitterness to balance the solar profile of the vintage). Elevage in foudre. Bottled April 2022.
