The dry 2020 Riesling Lanius-Knab presents itself radiantly clear. Its fine scent is reminiscent of fresh citrus fruits, vineyard peach and passion fruit. In the mouth it unfolds fresh and fruity. It is a lighter Riesling, but still surprises with a confident reverberation.
This wine is grown on the Engehoeller Goldemund. This location is situated in a side valley of the Rhine and is therefore about 1.5 km from the Rhine. Like all the side valleys on the central Rhine, which are used for wine growing, the slopes face south or south east, which gives the vines plenty of hours of sunshine. The grapes all grow on steep slopes, so that there is a great deal of handwork in the vines here. Apart from the slate soil so typical of the central Rhine area, there are also thin layers of quartzite as well as a high percentage of clay. The location is predestined for Riesling vines. The characteristics of the soil mean that it is not the minerals in the slate that dominate the wine, but the fruitiness. The location gives the Riesling its special clarity, freshness and the typical aroma of native fruits and above all hints of citrus.
Whether on the terrace or to the modern kitchen – you are sure to enjoy a second glass of this wine. It is particularly good with fish and seafood or fresh summer salads.
