Category: 12% ABV, Germany, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen, Riesling
Very dry at just 3.5g/l RS. Sourced from Gunderloch's three grand cru sites (Rothenberg, Pettenthal, Hipping), spontaneously fermented and vinified in steel. Red slate (roten schiefer) coats the tongue and flourishes its herbal, spice-scented signature. 12hrs of skin contact also lends the wine a touch of tannin and phenolic tension that makes this a bracing, refreshing experience.
Riesling pure and focused, at its best! Typical fruity characteristics and long mineral finish of our “Red Slate” vineyards. This “Estate Riesling” is the “liquid business card” of our winery.
Out of our three top vineyard sites Nierstein Hipping, Nierstein Pettenthal and Nackenheim Rothenberg. Red slate soil from Permian times (290 mil. years old).
