Riesling Kabinett 2011

 

Origin

Mosel

Vineyard

The steep south-to-southwest facing slopes with a deep top soil of weathered slate soak up a lot of sun and store the heat well and are usually sufficiently supplied with water even in drought periods.


Viticulture 

Integrated farming methods that protect our valuable soils and support the vines, so that they find their perfect balance and thus grapes that give perfect physiological maturity. 

Vinification

A gentle, temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless-steel tanks; racking after several months on the lees.

Description

Refined, spicy minerality; elegant and delicate.

Recommendations for Drinking and Eating

Well chilled at 10–12°C as an aperitif, pastries, or scallops wrapped in bacon.
