Dopff & Irion
Based in the Hansel and Gretal-like village of Riquewihr in the heart of Alsace, this highly respected producer, dating back to the 16th century is now in the hands of the Cave de Pfaffenheim. Established in 1957 by the growers of the villages of Pfaffenheim and Gueberschwir, this is one of the top cooperatives in Alsace. There is a very focused and evironmentally friendly vineyard regime, all grapes are handpicked and a great deal of investment has gone into the winery.
Yellow in colour. Aromas of dried fruit and white stone fruit. Round, soft and well balanced with hints of honey and wax.
Perfect on its own, or try with Shellfish, poultry, turkey or other white meat.
