Summer of Alsace

Forget rosé, this summer we are enjoying some excellent bottles from the Rhine River plain. The incredibly versatile, aromatic and crisp wines produced in Alsace are happy partnering all manner of dishes. Examples include barbecued feta, smoked salmon and even duck. Of course, the off-dry wines can be a great accompaniment to a summer fruit salad too.

ABFW's Alsace portfolio also has excellent ageing potential. We are particularly enjoying those wines which are at least five years old, where the minerality for which the region is most loved is really developing.

We have put together two great selections of mixed case vintage Alsace for you. For those looking to expand their reserves of sweet wine, we also have a case of selected Vendanges Tardives and Sélection de Grains Nobles from some truly excellent vintages. Each case below is offered at at least a 10% discount to our trade prices.

  • The Été en Alsace case (£195) is a selection of three bottles of each of Gewürztraminer, Muscat, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir from vintages 2007-2012.

  • Anthony's Grand Cru Selection (£265) comprises four bottles of each of Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris, from 2009 - 2012. These wines have been specially selected for their great ageing potential.

  • We are very fortunate to have some excellently rich and soft delayed harvest VT and SGNs, produced only in great years from the best quality parcels of land. These wines have reliable ageing potential of up to 20 years from harvest. Our final Alsation mixed case selection (£450) is a carefully chosen collection of outstanding examples from the 2005 - 2009 vintages.
