Fritz's Riesling grows in a very small and special part of Rheinhessen called the Roter Hang, a name meaning “red hill“ due to its red-slate soils. The combination of the red slate soil, its proximity to the Rhine river, exposure to the sun and the steepness of the vineyards are perfect for producing wines with wonderful ripeness.
Brilliant water like core with a greenish tinged rim. Red apple and lime aromas mix with hints of honeysuckle, toast and spice. Brimming with delicious lime and red apple fruits, the palate shows terrific intensity. Traces of honeysuckle, mandarin and slatey mineral characters fill out the back half. Finishes dry with crunchy acidity and a delightfully long, mouth watering aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Alc. 12%
