Hofkellerei des Fursten von Liechtenstein Riesling Reserve 2019
Hofkellerei des Fursten von Liechtenstein Riesling Reserve is a timeless wine embodying the freshness of the vintage. Luminescent yellow colour with silver reflections. The nose has a salty undercurrent with layers of intense apricot, white peaches, elderflower and dried blossoms. Tightly woven palate with a vibrant acidity, fine balance and expressions of tropical fruit, touches of lemon and classic Riesling notes in the background.
100% Riesling. The fruit comes from older vines, grown in the deep loess soils of the single vineyards Karlsberg and Johannesberg. These vineyards have been owned by the family for more than 600 years.
Traditional second fermentation in the bottle, two years maturing in the bottle.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
"Medium golden yellow with silver reflections. Fresh orange zest, ripe yellow peach fruit, and some mango with a mineral backdrop. Full-bodied, with notes of yellow apple and papaya, a fine acid structure, and some blossom honey on the finish. Good ageing potential."
