Charles Frey Riesling Granite 2020

Originally hailing from Switzerland, the Frey family established themselves in Dambach-la-Ville in the 18th century with aspirations of vine cultivation. Starting with a mere 1.5 hectares in Dambach-la-Ville, their early viticulture was intertwined with polyculture, aided by family cattle. By 1958, Charles and Jean-Pierre Frey received 0.75 hectares each from their father, leading Charles and his wife Renée to venture into exclusive winegrowing, resulting in the first bottles in 1963. A cellar and wine-tasting space emerged in 1968, further growing to accommodate the enterprise's then-4-hectare harvest. In 1997, Dominique, now joined by his wife Nathalie, embraced biodynamic farming, turning the estate into an Alsace biodynamic pioneer. Overcoming initial scepticism, their dedication endured and Julien, the third generation, entered the scene introducing fresh ideas. A new bioclimatic storehouse arose in 2010, marking a significant stride. With 14 hectares today the journey continues with the addition of Thiébaud, the youngest, shaping the future commercial direction.

The year 2020 marked a warmer vintage in Alsace, characterized by hot and dry weather spanning from the initial bud burst through the entire growing period. Despite this, intermittent rainfall provided relief. This climatic pattern is reflected in the slightly more opulent character of the 'Granite' Riesling, while the inherent finesse and phenolic framework of the House are upheld. Aromas of white peach, lemon, and a hint of quince emanate from the wine, yet the palate retains its enduring freshness and linear structure.
