LOCAL SOIL CHARACTERISTICS


SCHOENENBOURG (The beautiful Hill) is one of the most prestigious sites in Alsace. Situated to the North of Riquewihr, the vineyard runs along the rather steep south and south-east flanks of the hillside, at an altitude of 265 to 380 meter. It covers an area of 53.4 hectares, over a water-retaining subsoil of keuper, marl, dolomite and gypsum, rich in fertilizing agents, overlaid with fine layers of quaternary siliceous gravel, Vosges sandstone and muschelkalk.
DOPFF "Au Moulin" owns 8.8 hectares. On the SCHOENENBOURG, RIESLING is KING. SUPERFICIE DU VIGNOBLE DOPFF 8.8 hectares

VINIFICATION
Grape variety : 100 % RIESLING grapes, picked by hand with 13.6%vol potential alcohol. Grapes have been pressed entirely without crushing. Static racking of the must was followed by a slow temperature controlled fermentation. Later the wine was stored in old oak casks on fine lees during several months. Finally this wine was bottled in December.
