For our estate Riesling "Grauschiefer" the grapes get harvested in our vineyards Niederhäuser Steinwingert and Rosenheck. The soil is characterised by very large slate plates, which can store heat very well.
The Riesling grapes of this wine were harvested by hand in the first half of October after a very long period of vegetation, after two selections. After a mashing time of approx. three hours, the grapes were gently pressed and partially fermented with natural yeasts under temperature control.
Taste: Racy slate minerality, classic Riesling fruit, juicy, fresh and elegant.
