Riesling Gletscherschliff 2016
come from our Riesling vineyards in Juval and from other three vineyards on the Sonnenberg in the Vinschgau valley, where the soil benefits from a unique microclimate, with high daytime temperatures and cool nights.
The wine feature is grapes from young vineyards, which make such an elegant and clear wine.
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 to 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.
has all the distinctive characteristics of a Riesling produced in southern Alps. A stimulating wine with a scent of white peach and grapefruit. The palate features juicy and salty. Pairs well as an appetizer and with seafood. It’s particularly good young, or after one to two years of bottling.
