Jean-Luc and Anne Mader founded their small (but high quality) family domaine in 1981, after having worked at the local winemaking cooperative although these days it's their son, Jérôme, who oversees most of the work in the vineyards and cellar. They're headquartered in the village of Hunawihr, with vineyard holdings spanning roughly 10 ha's, which they farm organically (and, more recently, biodynamically). They're lucky to include prized holdings in the famous 'Rosacker' and now in Schlossberg. Everything here is done by hand from start to finish, and typically the Mader whites incorporate large percentages of whole bunches in their ferments, lending depth and longevity to their wines. 
Jerome is fanatical about quality so yields are kept very low and selections for all wines are extremely strict ensuring the highest quality in every bottle. The entire range of wines from the Mader family taste true to their grape varieties and vineyard origins and all represent fantastic value.

Tasting Note:
The Rosacker is made from 60+ year old vines located near the top of the vineyard which is also home to the famous 'Clos St Hune' Riesling from Trimbach. Yields were kept low in 2019 which resulted in a concentrated wine of great intensity of character with notes of green mango peel, citrus blossoms, guava, freshly cut green apple, white peach, pineapple, white flowers, and lime leaf with undercurrents of smoke, flint, and crushed river stone. This wine has real finesse with rich, intense citrus fruit and a long outstanding finish. 

This is a Dry , Medium bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
