This semi-sweet Riesling is fresh, with a touch of citrus and pear with a fruity mid-palate and crisp acidity on an elegant finish.
Food Pairings: Pairs well with salads, chicken, spicy dishes or fruit.
The grapes are from the mosel-saar-ruwer region of germany. The steep south facing slopes and stony slate soils are ideal growing conditions for riesling. Due to the steep slopes the vines are trained up 8 foot high wooden stakes and are harvested by hand. The grape harvest quantities per hectare are reduced to guarantee a selection of only top quality fruit. The grapes are then cold-fermented to capture the natural taste of the grapes. After fermentation, there is a second “selection” process to assure only the best wine of the lot is chosen, resulting in the highest quality riesling.
