The dry 2021 Riesling is appearing bright clear. It has a delicate scent of peach and lemon. On the palate it feels fresh and fruit accentuated. It is a lighter Riesling with a surprisingly confident finish.
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.
The Rhine kilometers count the navigable kilometers between Konstanz and Rotterdam. Along the river you can find man-high shields with the numbers for the navigation on the Rhine.
