Tasting notes - Like all Rieslings grown in slate covered locations, this wine needs time to develop. It shows wonderful subtle mineral undertones, enveloped in notes of ripe nectarine and yellow peach. With fine acidity and a textured palate, this is a very elegant Riesling expression.

White pepper with peach and floral hints and a lovely
whistle clean finish. Elegant and Riesling expression full
of vitality.
Producer Note
After only a few years, Johann is carving out a formidable reputation for
concentrated, mineral laden white wines. His wines are always in high demand. The
production from his five hectares of hillside vineyard in the Spitzer Valley is miniscule,
but despite this his prices remain really competitive.
Vineyard
The grapes are grown in 5.5 hectares of the best vineyards around Spitz. The soils
are made up of Mica schist and para gneiss rock with a high slate content. The
vineyards are carefully managed, quantities are restricted through green harvesting,
which concentrates the flavours in the remaining berries. The harvest takes place in
several rounds, hand picking the berries according to exacting standards, ensuring
the optimal ripeness of the grapes. Throughout the production process, the grapes
are handled with the utmost care.
Winemaking
Made from late picked grapes, this wine retains a slight amount of residual sugar.
The grapes were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, which
retain the integrity of the primary fruit aromas and preserve the characteristics of the
terroir in the resulting wine.
Tasting Note
Like all Rieslings grown in slate covered locations, this wine needs time to develop. It
shows wonderful subtle mineral undertones, enveloped in notes of ripe nectarine
and yellow peach. With fine acidity and a textured palate, this is a very elegant
Riesling expression.
Serving Suggestion
This wine is a wonderful accompaniment to Mediterranean cuisine, especially fish
dishes.
