  • A refreshing and grippy Riesling with notes of redcurrant, blood orange, and a lovely balance of delicate sweetness and zesty acidity through to a slightly bitter-sweet finish. 2023 presented a challenging yet diverse vintage. Slow growth was attributed to cold weather, which transitioned into rapid development in May. July was dry; however, August's rainfall over-delivered water. The grapes rapidly increased in size and were on the verge of bursting, resulting in high disease pressure. A successful harvest started on 25th September, marked by dry and warm weather.

The fruit was immediately crushed, pressed and clarified by sedimentation, and the must was pumped into 2,000-litre stainless steel tanks where cold fermentation with selected yeasts lasted 18 to 20 days; fermentation was stopped prematurely at the desired sugar level. Aged for five months in stainless steel, blending took place four weeks before bottling.

This refreshing and grippy Riesling has notes of redcurrant and blood orange and a lovely balance of delicate sweetness and zesty acidity, which leads to a slightly bitter-sweet finish.

The 40 to 50-year-old vines are grown on original European rootstocks. 70% of the grapes come from the staircase-steep amphitheatre-shaped vineyards of Urziger Wurzgarten. The volcanic rhyolitic soils are layered with red slate. Due to the southern exposure and the protective rocks, Ürziger Wurzgarten is one of the warmer microclimates, producing opulent, aromatic, spicy Riesling with a typical zesty finish. 30% of the fruit comes from Erdener Treppchen, located one kilometre downstream, where the terroir, microclimate, and resulting wines are entirely different. Due to its western orientation, the slightly lesser gradient, and the lack of slate cliffs, Erdener Treppchen is cooler, which combined with the blue slate soil, produces more delicate wines with racy acidity. The vines are VSP trained, allowing easy canopy management on the steep gradient. Summer leaf removal provides good air circulation and reduces photosynthesis, resulting in a later harvest, producing berries with less sugar, less alcohol, and good aromatic maturity. Hand harvested.
