White, Crisp, Dry and Refreshing
23 in stock
Tasting Note: The Mandelpfad Grosses Gewächs (‘Almond Path’ Grand Cru) is from the a select portion (‘Himmelsrech’ =’Heaven’) of a warm, sheltered vineyard site. The wine is consequently a generous, rounded, rich expression of Riesling – dry, yet gentle and creamy in texture. The aromas are complex, with honeycomb, beeswax and vanilla bean alongside fruit tree blossom, passion fruit and pineapple. In the mouth, it is full and rich, with layers of texture, beautiful filigree structure and a fine, long finish.
Food Matching: Fish, white meats and poultry. It would go exceptionally well with goose.
Vineyard: The grapes come exclusively from the Mandelpfad vineyard. The name means ‘almond path’ and refers to the famous almond trees in the area. The vineyard is sheltered and south-facing with deep loess and limestone soils, giving excellent ripening for fuller-bodied wines.
Vinification: The grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and pneumatically pressed. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks for 30 days at a temperature of 19 degrees C. The wine is then bottled after a further 7 months in a mixture of stainless steel and 600L traditional Halbstück barrels.
