Description

VINTAGES is unique and new to the German wine world and is intended to show how much fun, soul and variety there is in combining several vintages that complement each other perfectly. It is a wine that gives a foretaste of where the world of mature Rieslings can lead by combining several vintages, different weather patterns, maturation stages, personal intuition and above all a fusion of aromas. This idea is new, since in Germany and at Dreissigacker as well normally the focus is on vintage-related development in order to bring out the special characteristics of every single vintage. VINTAGES should deliberately deviate from this. This Riesling shows the fresh and young aromas of the latest 2019 vintage, has the balance, the rounded and developed style as a strong middle of the 2018 vintage and the fine ripe aromas of a carefully matured wine from the 2017 vintage in the finale. Hand-picked grapes, gentle pressing, cold maceration period up to 8 hours, spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts, fermentation and maturation in stainless steel (80%) and 1200L German oak barrels (20%). Light straw yellow colour with aromas of white flowers, citrus and apple. Palate has great juiciness and fruitiness, well balanced minerality and a superb finish. Certified Organic.
