This Riesling is a blend of wines sourced from different younger terraced (= high quality) vineyards. The elevated terraces consist of stonier soils that bring fruit driven wines with mineral nuances and good aging potential. The vines from lower sited terraces grow partly on layered fertile loess and bring earlier maturing wines that are very expressive in their youth.By combining those two characteristics, we obtain a Riesling that shows both finesse and certain vigor.
A whole bouquet of white and yellow flowers (elder-acacia) rises immediately to the nose, followed by some mineral and yeasty tones, dry and surprisingly fresh on the palate, pure, fragrant and again striking with its light fruit tones like fresh vineyard peaches, also a fresh acidity backbone that highlights some spice and minerals, elegant, slender yet complete Riesling version, perfect for the summerly terraces.
"Quite discreet aromas of lemons and apples with green-pear notes, too. The palate has a smooth, stone and pastry core with lime zest adding spark and freshness. Quite savory. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
