Product Description

This derives from 60-year-old vines in the middle of the Schlossberg slope. Here the exposure and granitic, mineral-rich soils are ideal for producing profound Riesling. The 2011 is one of the finest examples of this wine we have imported, combining power with remarkable finesse. We found freshly grated lime, nectarine and crunchy red peach skin aromas and flavours, a seamless texture and a long, saline and spring water pure finish. A wine of great beauty, style and presence.

"Bright pale green. Apple and pear, minerals and white peach on the perfumed nose. Very pure on the palate, with enamel-shattering acidity framing the intense white stone fruit, apple and mineral flavors. Offers a wonderful combination of refinement and power. Made from 40-to-60-year-old vines located in midslope of this famous grand cru."
93+ Points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"Dry, with a laser beam of acidity and a pronounced mineral overtone. Shows fine balance, with hints of sea salt and brine accenting the flavors of green melon, star fruit, crunchy white peach, pickled ginger and anise. Zesty finish."
