Bischel 2017 Appenheimer Riesling "Terra Fusca" dry

Regular price £22.40

This dry Riesling has a salty minerality, animated acidity and ripe fruity flavours, that offer the perfect balance of power and elegance. On the nose, it has aromas of spicy herbs and sweet yellow fruit.

Vineyards: The grapes stem from the oldest Riesling vines in Appenheim. In the vineyards of Hundertgulden and Eselpfad, the soil is rich in marl and limestone, giving the wine its mineral character. Both vineyards are south-facing and between 150 and 240 metres in altitude. Warm temperatures in the day and cool nights ensure a slow and balanced ripening period.

Vinification: The late harvest took place in stages, with the grapes picked by hand as they ripened. After the grapes were gently pressed, the juice ferments with wild yeast in wooden casks and stainless steel vats. After six months on the yeast, the wine was bottled.

Alcohol: 12,5% vol.
Res. sugar: 4,5 g/l
