2018 Heymann-Löwenstein Riesling, Mosel Germany
*Limited quantities available*
The Heymann-Löwenstein Riesling bottling comes from declassified grapes from the family's Schieferterrassen vineyards - essentially the premier-cru sites of Hamm and Brückstück. These are very steep slate sites that are organically farmed. The grapes are very gently pressed as whole bunches before indigenous-yeast fermentation (around 30% in old casks, 70% stainless steel) before a long period of lees contact and relatively late bottling.
Very floral and fragrant bouquet here of dried honeysuckle, apricot dessert and candied papaya. Rich and supple, but vertical and pure, this is a delicious dry Riesling to tag along to your next BYO Cantonese restaurant jaunt.
18+ only. Please drink responsibly
