    This Riesling has a fine vein of flint and gooseberry as well as a delicate mouthfeel and that very typical fine saline note that many Scharzhofberger share. Minerality wonderfully integrated into the ensemble. Tension right through to the last drop.

    Pairs beautifully with...
    Maghreb dishes such as tagine or couscous; meat cooked sous vide; fish dishes such as Dover sole meunière; or a fine veal or poultry fricassée.

    The year started very wet with what seemed like three months of non-stop rain.
    Spring was warm and dry – ideal conditions for an early bud burst.
    Continuation: In Summer weather improved day by day. Only our youngest vines were a little less happy, as their roots have not yet reached the necessary depth to get through dry periods completely unscathed.
    When harvest-time came nature spoiled us with heavenly conditions and a “golden autumn”. Our fruit was outstanding at all quality and Prädikat wine levels. We were fortunate enough to select Trockenbeerenauslesen – the pinnacle of any vintage – from a number of different sites. The extra warmth resulting in exceptional levels of ripeness, flavour and minerality as well as excellent quantities.
    Summary: A sun-blessed year of superlatives!
