Elegant nose of ripe, fleshy fruit. A rich palate with a well balance acidity creates a pure, fresh mouth with a lingering finish. Marries marvelously with fine fish and white meats in creamy sauces.
Can be aged 10-15 years. Store on side between 10-15°C. Ideally served between 8-10°C.
“Possessing an intense yellow color the 2011 Riesling Grand Cru Rosacker has deep, ripe and elegant fruit aromas on the complex and spicy nose. From the deep marl soils of the prestigious Rosacker (a east-southeast facing cru between 260 and 330 meters of altitude and a heavy, stony, calcareous marly-clay soil over a limestone bedrock which guarantees freshness even in a warm vintage like 2011) this full-bodied and powerful dry Riesling has a stunning vital acidity and lingering salinity. The finish is long and complex and very well structured but, maybe, a little bit bitter.”

“Baked apricot and plum fruit flavors are layered with candied kumquat and smoke notes in this ripe white, while hints of salted almond, anise and petrol show on the moderate finish. Drink now through 2019.”
