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.
