Göttelmann 2017 Rheinberg Riesling Auslese (0,5l)

Regular price £25.65

This Riesling is is made from raisins selected from a single Göttelmann vineyard in Rheinberg, Nahe during the last week of October. A special team of four pickers collected the natural berries over several days. The harvest created over 300 litres of wine which, once bottled, produced 600 500ml bottles.

The concentration of sugar in the juice was about 30%. Fermentation lasted until April of the following year. The theoretical possible alcohol content would have been 18% but fermentation stopped at 7,4 and left a lot of residual sugar - 156 g/l.

In nose and mouth, the wine shows dried apricots, rhubarb, and quince.

Alcohol: 7,5% vol.
Res. sugar: 152 g/l
Acidity: 10,5 g/l
