Historically, the Rheingau is a more important flagship for fine riesling than any other German wine region which remains by far its dominant variety.
Bright pale straw colour with pale straw hue. Delicate top note of lime, followed by a touch of rose petal with subtle notes of spice and orange rind. The palate is on the dry side, with flavours of lemon, light tropical fruit and orange rind. Clean acid finish. Lemon and orange rind finish.
Cellar 2-3 years (2010-2011)
Comments from George Breuer: We vinify our wines so that they can be matched with food. Therefore all our Riesling wines are dry or semi dry. The only exceptions being dessert wines where botrytis and exceptional weather conditions make their production feasible. All our wines have great concentration. This is very favorable when matched with food, adds an additional life span to the wines and corresponds to our own idea of quality. Therefore in our estate it is highest physiological ripeness in the grapes and their status of health that determines the harvest date. In conclusion, balance, aromas and body in our wines is more important than must weight; extract and the inner density more important than yield. We believe in artisanal traditional vinification methods.
"A clean and racy striaghforward style, this is a cuvee of fruit from various vineyards around the Rheingau, made as an entry level wine. 80% stainless steel ferment, this is fuller, riper, more lifted and spicy". - Patrick Walsh, Cellarhand.
