Regular price £61.85

Vineyard: The site of the “HOHENMORGEN” is situated at the western brim of the town of Deidesheim. Deidesheim is the historical centre of the quality wine-making in the Palatinate area. The HOHENMORGEN is a south facing slope of only 2,76 ha and by this the smallest and most exclusive vineyard of Deidesheim.

The soil is a pure eroded sandstone soil.

Wine: The wines planted in 1979 were selectively harvested in several passes. The grapes of each lot were pressed separately and the musts fermented in traditional wooden barrels. When fermentation was complete, the coarse yeast was removed and the wines remained of the fine yeast. The Hohenmorgen was filled in July. The typical Riesling aromas of citrus and apple mate here with pronounced smokiness. The Hohenmorgen has a lot of power, but does not seem heavy at all, but rather dense and concentrated. The wine with a lot od complexity and elegant acidity, which gives it a wonderful length in the finish. This Riesling can be wonderfully combined with shirt-roasted meat, poultry and steamed vegetables. Let the Hohenmorgen mature to its true greatness for at least 5 years in your cellar.
