Variety: Riesling

Origin: Rheinhessen, Germany. The Rheinhessen region is Germany’s largest wine growing region. Its beginnings go back to the Romans who already planted vines along the banks of the Rhine River. It enjoys the climate of a protected basin and is an area with some of Germany’s warmest and driest climate. Overall, it has low precipitation, warm summers and mild winters. Riesling is grown on approx. 9,400 acres, which represents 14% of the total vineyards.

Vintage Note: After a mild winter and a cold spring followed by a very humid summer we experienced a beautifully warm late summer and dry autumn with perfect harvesting conditions. This vintage turned out to produce fruit driven, very accessible wines with excellent structure and ripeness.

Winemaking: Grapes from selected vineyards have been chosen to produce this Riesling. Gentle pressing, strict purification of musts, fermentation with selected yeasts under temperature controlled conditions, storage in stainless steel tanks until bottling.

Wine Analysis:

Winemakers Tasting Note:
The wine is full flavoured with pear and citrus aromas. Stimulating on the palate, as well as fresh and fruity. It has a nice sweetness balanced with the typical crisp Riesling acidity.

Food Matches: It ideally pairs with lighter or spicy cuisine or simply on its own.
