Hans Wirsching's 2017 Iphöfer Julius Echter Berg Riesling Grand Cru dry wine comes from the Franken region of Germany, and as such is available in the traditional Bocksbeutel bottles associated with this region.
The Riesling Grand Cru from the top site Julius-Echter-Berg is one of the premium wines. The Julius-Echter-Berg premises concentrated and powerful wines with a strong character.
The distinctive mineral notes reflecting the terrior and the aroma of ripe peach define the character of this Grand Cru. Additionally, the fine hints of citrus notes provide a pleasant tension on the palate. The crisp, but subtle acidity gives the wines its delicate structured body and truly animates to enjoy the next sip. Thanks yo its lingering finish it allows an even longer enjoyment.
To create such a premium wine a great deal of work was necessary in both the wine cellar and the vineyard. In the early stage of ripeness, for example, we divided each grape to ensure perfect conditions for the future vegetation progress and to reduce the number of grapes on the vine. Enabling the growth and efficiency of the vine concentrate on the few grapes left.
Enjoy this wine together with fine dishes such as fish, vegetables or light meat. It is also a perfect match to creamy sauces.
