Reiterpfad Achtmorgen Riesling GG

Classification
VDP.Große Lage

Variety:
100% Riesling

Origin:

Situated on the lower, south-facing slope of the VDP.ERSTE LAGE REITERPFAD. The climate in the prime vineyard “Achtmorgen”, classified as VDP.GROSSE LAGE (Grand Cru,) is warm and dry, almost Mediterranean. The weathered shell limestone mixes with sand, sandy loam and colored sandstone pebbles. Although the soils are very rocky, they have high water storage capacity.

Vineyard work:
Buckwheat, radish and clover aerate the soil and attract useful animals. Horse dung fertilizes the soil naturally. We remove leaves selectively and work with low yields.

Vinification:
Hand harvested and whole-cluster pressed. Wild yeast fermented and aged on the lees in stainless steel and big wooden casks.

Character:
Full-bodied and yellow fruit-driven, yet balanced by its pecise acidity
