Wittmann 2016 Kirchspiel Riesling Grand Cru Dry

Regular price £44.14

In an amphitheatre which is exposed to quite a lot of wind, so it is quite cool. More limestone here. Old river soils. Green apricots and Granny Smith apples on the nose. Green, leafy and edges like cut glass. Finely chiselled and as lean as a whippet. (Written by Tamlyn Currin – JancisRobinson.com)

Description:
“Extremely fine and lively fragrance. Mineral notes clearly play center stage. Its fruit is quite subtle. The wine shows a refreshing lightheartedness. An absolute dream wine.” (Max Gerstl, Weingut Wittmann’s Swiss importer)

What an enchanting nose, rich with dreamy finesse and a stunning, full body; sensational — even spectacular — and above all else refined and sensual. This is a Riesling so complete that it’s impossible to imagine any way to make it better.

Vinification:
Intensive vineyard maintenance throughout the year, low yields and an uncompromising selection of bunches – by hand – lay the foundation for wines of high quality. In the cellar, the grapes and must are handled very gently. For the most part, the wines ferment in traditional, old oak casks.

Alcohol:       13,5% vol.
Res. sugar:  4,1g/l
Acidity:        9,9 g/l

This is an organic wine, and also a biodynamic wine.
