The dry Riesling Engehoeller Bernstein „S” is just delightful. Also, wine drinkers, who prefer less dry wines, will enjoy this Riesling. The fruity flavor of passion fruit, lime and lychee appears powerful with a strong slate minerality. The acidity typical for Riesling is well-integrated and refreshing.
Erste Lage is the designation for prime vineyards with outstanding character which provide optimal growing conditions and have been proven to produce consistently high-quality wines over a long period of time. The wines are of at least Spaetlese quality. The vines root quite deep in these vineyards. The soil of the Engehoeller Bernstein is dominated by brown and grey slate and provides the minerality in this Riesling. The adept recognizes that by the elegance and the typical peach flavor of the wine.
Opposite the Schoenburg castle in a side valley of the Rhine the vineyard is facing south-east and the grapes are allowed to soak up the sun. The result is a Riesling, harvested slightly later in a riper condition with around 100° Oechsle. That develops the ripe flavors, which make the wine so harmonious.
With the Engehoeller Bernstein „S” you pour in your glass the pure joy of living!
