Grapes were grown on the steep (up to 70%) south-facing slope of Piesport. Here the vineyard soil is made up of soft clay-slate soil. This soil and the protective bend of the Mosel-river result in rich and ripe Riesling wines.
The hand-picked grapes were crushed carefully and the must partly fermented with indigenous yeasts. After a long and cool fermentation the wine is filtered carefully and bottled 5 months after harvest. To preserve the wines character wine treatment during vinification is kept to a minimum.
Rich and elegant nose of peaches, blackcurrant and pineapples. Refreshing but balanced acidity defines the palate, again with plenty of fruit. This Riesling is easy to sip with a nice grip of minerals in the finish.
Tom Yum seafood dishes, thick chicken curry, BBQ seafood, blue cheese slections.
