The vineyards of Alsace are concentrated in a narrow strip, running in a roughly north–south direction, on the lower eastern slopes of the Vosges, at altitudes of 175–420 m. The Riesling in the Steinklotz Grand Cru (meaning block of stone) was grown in a vineyard that covers 40.6 hectares and is located at the top of the Alsace wine route, in Marlenheim. The steep hillside (200 – 300m) is south/south-east facing providing better exposure to sun, but with enough altitude to enable Riesling to ripen gently.

This wine has an attractive medium lemon-green appearance with the typical brightness in the glass of young Riesling. This is an excellent expression of Alsace Grand Cru Riesling with ripe lime and peach, white flower, and some stoniness. On the palate, it is effectively dry, medium-bodied with very pure lime, red apple and peach fruit and a savoury, stony finish. A true delight to drink, enjoy!

Arthur Metz was originally established in 1904 as a wine merchant based in Paris. When bottling became mandatory in Alsace, Metz seized the opportunity to build a major wine company in the region.
The Metz winery is located in Couronne d’Or (“Golden Crown”), near the village of Marlenheim. Here, Metz combines tradition and technology and is a modern, winery in every sense: from its high-tech production facilities and sleek tasting room to its public dining room and wine school. Metz is known for producing award-winning AOC and Grand Cru wines from historic plots, as well as its best-selling Crémant d’Alsace.
