100% Riesling. The grapes come from vineyards along the famous river Rhein in the surrounding of Nierstein. This area has some of Germany’s warmest and driest climate. Overall, it has low precipitation, warm summers and mild winters. The soil easily heats up und distinguishes itself by a high mineral content, which provides the wines with depth and body.
After a very long ripening phase, selection of only the healthy and fully ripe grapes. Gentle pressing, then a slow fermentation under controlled temperature conditions in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fruitiness. After fermentation, yeasts are kept in the tanks for 3 months (“sur-lie”) to enhance complexity.
