In the nose, this Riesling Grand Cru has aromas of fresh peach and apricot, as well as spice and a little tea. After further aeration in the glass, full sweet dense fruit. This dry wine has a long finish with cool smoky minerality.
Vineyard: The grapes come from an old vineyard in Bischel's VDP.Grosse Lage Appenheimer Hundertgolden. Limestone and marl formed from the coral beds of the tertiary primeval sea characterise the soil there. The steep, south-west facing slope, with its high carbonate content, allows the grapes to fully ripen very slowly, producng wines with razor-sharp minerality and clarity.
Vinification: The very late harvest is staggered, with grapes selected by hand according to ripeness. For optimal extraction of the aromas, the grapes are gently crushed in the winery and left to stand in their own juice for a few hours. After gentle pressing, the must ferments with the vineyard's own yeasts. After eight months of maturation, the wine was bottled.
