Product Description

  • Riesling - White German Wine
  • This crisp, Trocken (German for dry) Riesling is an excellent expression of what this noble grape variety does best. The Pfalz is one of Germany's driest and sunniest wine growing regions: during the long growing season the Riesling develops its ripe fruit aromas of grapefruit and green apple. The Kalkstein (Limestone) soils on which the vines grow give a fresh and crisp minerality.

Vinification Details

  • The grapes were harvested late September at optimum ripeness. They were then pressed gently, cooled down to 5°C and the heavier matter was allowed to settle naturally, leaving behind a clean juice with enhanced fruit definition. The juice was then fermented at low temperatures of 14-16°C / 57-61°F for approximately 3 weeks in stainless steel. This Riesling vom Kalkstein was kept on the fine lees for the remaining time before bottling, thereby gaining texture and a balanced palate.

History

  • This crisp, Trocken (German for dry) Riesling is an excellent expression of what this noble grape variety does best. The Kalkstein (Limestone) soils on which the vines grow give a fresh and crisp minerality.

Regional Information

  • The Pfalz is one of Germany's key wine-growing regions and is situated in the southwest, across the border from Alsace. The weather here is generally sunny and dry, as the vineyards are in the lee of the Haardt Mountains, allowing the grapes to reach optimum ripeness. The soils are fertile loess and loam with a high mineral content on underlying limestone.
