Description

Different weather conditions before harvest, but most locations were affected by a slight summer drought. However, almost everywhere grapes were in an excellent condition and with a high must weight. September turned out to be an almost perfect harvest month: during the day there was usually pleasant warmth, at night it cooled down, so that the grapes remained largely healthy and were able to keep their acidity and develop intensive aromas. Hand picked from 5 to 15 year old vines with maceration for up to 70 hours, spontaneous fermentation and maturation in 40% wooden barrels and 60% stainless steel vats and left for one year on its lees. This is not a typical Riesling, on the nose lime aromas are mixed with herbs and passion fruit. More conventional on the palate with ripe apples, apricot and pear dominating the flavours though accompanied by a herbal structure and a Riesling trademark minerality and high acidity.
