Vineyard Notes
The year 2017 gave us a lot of pleasure just towards the end. Sunny days in September, brought us the maturity and the specialness of this vintage is probably its freshness and longevity. The grapes are harvested from the red clay sandtone vineyards of Schloss Schwabsburg, a picturesque vineyard surrounded by the gentle rolling slopes.
Winemaking
Early handpicking, crushed and left on skins for 24 hours, spontaneous fermentation in Nobel steel tanks and a full yeast storage to mid-April.
Tasting Notes
A Riesling with suspense and the very typical red slope minerality. Herbs, mint and lemon balm meet delicate smoky notes and taut acid. 88 Points Weinplus -2018
