This Riesling always originates from our younger vines (10 to 15 years old) from the Herrenweg area and valley gravelly soils. In 2011, the harvest was quite generous, but the grapes showed ideal ripeness and beautiful colors. Despite a very early picking and totally healthy grapes, this is the wine in this range that fermented the slowest; however, due to the style of the vintage, it developed intense fruity character.
2/2012: the nose is already classic Riesling in a very aromatic, fruity style. It isn’t the very mineral type of Riesling but more an easy to understand soft nose. The palate is medium long, showing a nice fresh sapid acidity and medium round finish. The sweetness is perhaps higher than expected, but it doesn’t really impact the style too much. Overall it is an excellent food wine.
