This Kientzheim vineyard is surrounded by Grand Cru vineyards and gives attractively fruity wines. With its aromas of tropical fruits, this is quite an exotic wine, but has plenty of acidity to balance. There are great layers of structure, flavors of grapefruits and mangoes, and plenty of indication that this will age for 5 years or more.
