Less steep than neighbouring Kitterlé, Saering is gentler in its wine morphology and typicity. Saering cru opposes the calcareous subtlety to the resistance left by the granite.
Riesling stands out on this terroir with its floral and pleasantly fruity character, perceptible as of its young days. Less lively than those of Kitterlé or Spiegel, it sports a more harmonious, rounded acidity and less apparent minerality.
Conversely, Saering Gewurztraminer tends to have so much vivacity that it’s better to wait three or four years to truly appreciate the potential. It has more intense terroir nuances – a contrast which also highlights the particularity of each grape variety.
Saering Grand Cru wines stand out by its finesse.
If all grape varieties express the terroir-specific fruitiness and crispiness, the wine structure has a straightforward freshness, enhanced by remarkable and perceptive marine notes on the finish. These wines have delectable character and length.
Riesling offers floral fragrances and a salty sensation. Muscat and Gewurztraminer remain fresh and succulent, revealing savoury essence and noble plant-like touches, often reminiscent of water grasses.
