France’s Alsace prides itself on its pure fruit wines. And the endlessly refreshing Cuvée Cinq is no exception. A blend of mostly Riesling with splashes of aromatic Muscat and spicy Gewurztraminer, the wine is lime fresh with exotic fruit and spice.

Alsace produces some amazing pure fruit wines, mostly white with a little Pinot Noir. The region lies on the eastern edge of France, next to Germany and the Vosges mountains. It has very Germanic architecture, even names, and perhaps for this reason it’s often forgotten. But Alsace is one of the sunniest places in all France, resulting in the pure fruit style. This is one from the Gisselbrecht family’s 350 year old cellar, run today by brothers Philippe and Claude. Most Alsace wines are single varietal, but this is a tasty blend of lime fresh Riesling with grapey Muscat and Gewurztraminer (some late harvest for added ripeness). With notes of bright apple, pear, lychee and spice, it's ideal solo or with creamy fish, chicken or noodles.

"Stunning! It is light and not too sweet with a fantastic finish. I would buy a crate if I could" 5-Star Online Review
