Description of the wine Riesling Herrenweg de Turckheim 2000

This wine comes from the richer part of the Herrenweg vineyard, were loess deposits are mixed with the gravely soil. The result is often a wine with more power, acidity and richness. The 2000 ripened easily and developed botrytis quite early.

Tasting notes

12/2001 : The result is a wine that took almost a year to ferment. The nose is really very very aromatic and shows already today huge aromas of acacia, honey and exotic fruits. The mouth is long, rich, unctuous and delicate. The residual sweetness is here significant but is not at all overpowering the wine. The finish is clean and delicate. Today, this wine will be served better with Chinese food, delicate seafood, crayfish, onion pie...
