Castel Juval Riesling 2010
The grapes grow in a very windy and sunny area at an altitude from 650 m a.s.l. to 750 m a.s.l.. The microclimate facilitates a long ripening of the grapes until the end of the vegetation period, so that the fruits are full of a multiplicity of flavors.
In the cellar
In the cellar before pressing the grape mash depending on the vintage, we allow the peel to sit for some hours with the juice in order permit the flavor-enhancing constituents to emerge. We store the wine in stainless steel barrels to preserve it unadulterated.. We allow the young wine to ferment slowly through a moderate cool-down process in which the wine sits on its natural yeasts.
The wine is our interpretation of a Riesling grown on the hillside in Southern Alps.
It has fresh notes of pineapple, peach, lime and grapefruit.
On the palate taste juicy with mineral notes, invites another sip. Pairs well with tasty fish dishes, vegetables and white meat. It’s particularly good young or five to six years of bottling.
