A heavy, stony, calcareous marly-clay soil over a limestone bedrock with marl and sandstone strata on slopes facing east-southeast (alt. 260-330 m). Dry, delicate mineral and flowers notes, great aging potential. Wines from our Grand Cru Rosacker in Hunawihr, planted in Riesling, represent the height of gastronomic balance. These special Alsace wines show full structure, complex pepper andcitrus aromas and great elegance when young. As they age, they reveal more mineral flavors and are recognized by wine professionals to be among the best Rieslings of Alsace. Food pairing: marries marvelously with fine fish and white meats in creamy sauces

If the Schoenenboug has the power, the Rosacker has an edge of beguiling fragility or is it electricity. The limestone in the soil beams through with fresh and defined flavours that envelop the palate. Intense yet light on its feet with flowers more than citrus. A hint of rose, or is that just auto suggestion? Sweet herbs, notably mint. A gentle exotic note from the souk? The finish is then surprisingly mineral and long. A real dancer - refined and quite gorgeous. (Trimbach's Clos St-Hune comes from the Rosacker vineyard).
