Old vines planted in the late 1940s. Floral and feminine, a wine that pirouettes across the tongue leaving a note of sweet cumin in its wake. High-wired acidity. (Written by Tamlyn Currin – JancisRobinson.com)
The grapes for the Estate Riesling come from the vineyards located around the winery. The vines grow there on sediment soil that shows the Riesling character in a very good way. A smaller part of grapes were picked in the vineyard site Wiltinger Schlangengraben. The grapes there grow on a red slate soil in the cooler Saar area.
Soft, minerally and stony nose with concentrated fruit notes. Mouthwatering yet fully ripe and with a delicious interplay between fruit and freshness. Wonderful lightness and zest paired with great length.
