"A very harmonious, lighter-bodied dry Riesling with plenty of red-apple aroma and some spice that's very food friendly." - James Suckling
For their Estate Riesling "Grauschiefer", the grapes get harvested in their vineyards sites Niederhäuser Steinwingert and Rosenheck. The soil is characterised by very large slate plates, which can store heat very well.
Age of vineyard is 15 years old.
Winemaking: The Riesling grapes of this wine were harvested by hand in the first half of October after a very long period of vegetation, after two selections. After a mashing time of approx. 3 hours, the grapes were gently pressed and partially fermented with natural yeasts under temperature control.
Tasting notes: Racy slate minerality, classic Riesling fruit, juicy, fresh and elegant.
