Tasting :

Typical for wines from this vineyard side are smoky, spicy notes that are built by the limestone soil. The extraordinary structure of the soil creates a great minerality – harmony of salt and acidity – which gives the wine a long aftertaste. Through the perfect ripeness of the grapes and our careful handling of the grapes and the must, and in addition the slow fermentation in stainless steel we were able to produce a really elegant and complex wine. The density of ripeness, power, fruit and perfect balance of acidity makes this bone-dry Riesling so special.

Wine Pairing :

Delicious with pork, crustaceans, poultry, spicy dishes or cold meats.
