WINEMAKING:

We choose the picking date by the acidity level and not by the brix level of the grapes. This is very important to create a lively & well balanced Riesling. Ferments only in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks so we can stop the fermentation when needed. And that’s all the intervention we do as the wine making style is pretty much “less is more”. Bottled a few month later, all under screw cap to preserve freshness the longest.

TASTING NOTES:

The Queen of German wines offers oodles of fruit and acidity in perfect balance. It features a scintillating fruity lemon nose, apples on the palate, and an amazing minerality. A Riesling which will surprise & convince at the same time, as it is not sweet at all and for that reason a matchmaker when it comes to food pairing.

FOOD PAIRING:

West coast Cuisine, baked cheese dishes, seafood, chicken, veal, pork, pasta, grilled veggies or just a plate of charcuterie… it’s endless.
