100% Riesling / Alcohol: 13.2%
Riesling, the “queen of white wine”, came from the river Rhine to Austria. It is the second most important variety in Austria and widely spread. The late ripening grapes are highly demanding and need best soils and attention in the vineyard. Young Riesling wines are fruity with a sense of peach and apricots. In our vineyard Riesling plays an important role since it is also used for sparkling wines.
Careful and selective manual harvest at cool and dry weather conditions. Grapes had 20,5° Klosterneuburg must scale. Grapes were destemmed after must fermentation for 12 hours, they were pressed in pneumatic press and stored at controlled temperature of 23°C. The wine aged for 6 months on fine yeast and was stored in wooden barrels and stainless steel tank.
Lots of dry fruits, especially apricot, smells like hay and wild flowers, tender bourbon vanilla, lively and soft at the same time
