This Riesling is a blend of wines sourced from different terraced vineyards. The elevated terraces consist of stonier soils that bring fruit driven wines with mineral nuances and good aging potential. The vines from lower sited terraces grow partly on layered fertile loess and bring earlier maturing wines that are very expressive in their youth. By combining those two characteristics, we obtain a Riesling that shows both finesse and certain vigour.
Impressive primary fruit in this vintage (classic apricot and peach and also tangerine and citrus), flowery elements some herbs and green tea, still a bit yeasty, yet open at the front, with a hint of minerals and flowery aromas, straightforward and fresh on the palate again with surprising fruit, medium body, mineral nuances, good structure and balance, already accessible showing good potential.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Closed but dense floral aromas on the nose. Fine, linear fruit with incredible length and focus: lime, orange and graphite smoke. Very good density. Drink 2012-2022.” – Jancis Robinson
