Notes from the Winemaker:
The robe is bright golden yellow with green reflections of good intensity. The disk is bright, limpid and transparent. The wine shows youth.

The nose is marked, pleasant and intense. We perceive a dominant of fresh and fruity scents : citrus fruits, lemonzest, lime and white flowers. The airing enhances the previous scents and evolves into something more ripe (blood orange) and exotic (papaya) with a very noble mineral and smoky touch. Beautiful ripening of the grapes and excellent state of health. The complex profile of the terroir needs time to express itself and flourish. Patience.

The onset in the mouth is moderately ample, round. The alcohol support is full-bodied. The wine evolves on a medium of strict and tense vivacity, with a sparking note. The range of flavours is similar of that of the nose, still dominated by citrus fruits : lemon zest, yuzu, clementine, blood orange, white flowers and this superb mineral and smoky definition. We perceive the bitters of the terroir. The finish has a good length, 8-9 caudalies, and a frank liveliness. Typical of its terroir, the balance of this wine is slender and precise. Its aromatic range is still a bit short today. Time will be a good ally.

To the north of Guebwiller, Saering faces east and southeast at an altitude of 260 to 300. Saering marl/limestone/sandstone terroir brings out the best in this magnificent, fine, delicate Riesling.

Ratings / Reviews:

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Zesty notions of lime peel have a fruity, riper touch of red apple about them. It is these apple flavors that become very expressive and aromatic on the dry concentrated palate. There is lovely midpalate texture that has something of citrus pith about it, while lemon freshness is the central structural element. There is something solid and honest about this. Drink through 2028."

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A mouthwatering, light- to medium-bodied white, with fine drive to the creamy mix of blood orange sorbet, ripe yellow peach, saffron and exotic spice flavors. Long and minerally on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 2,000 cases made, 199 cases imported. — AN" (Issue Mar 31, 2019)

91 Points - Vinous:
"Good straw-green. White flowers and ripe stone fruit on the nose. Then bigger and richer in the mouth than the nose suggests, featuring clean, juicy flavors of ripe peach and pear that are full of early appeal. Finishes lemony and bright, with hints of flint." Ian D'Agata - (Jan 2019)
