Bassermann-Jordan 2019 Pechstein Riesling Grand Cru dry

Regular price £61.85

Vineyard: The Pechstein site is 15.3 ha in size. Of this, 0.75 ha is owned by the winery. The name Pechstein comes from the high proportion of basalt rock (old volcanic origin) in the Forster sites, which is particularly rich in Pachstein. Black, pitch-coloured stones = Pechstein.

Wine: The different plots were harvested and pressed separately. After clarifying the must by sedimentation overnight, fermentation took place in different wooden containers with the grape's own yeast. In the de-camber the wine was separated from the coarse yeast and reminded on the fine yeast until the filling in July. The filling took place without filtration.
The Pechstein shows in the nose a lot of exotic fruit like pineapple, grapefruit, lime zest and bergamot paired with flint and smoke. 
On the palate salty, dense and long with lots of minerality and fine acidity. 
Fits excellently with the modern Nordic cuisine with fish and seafood. The wine from Pechstein are characterised by their extreme longevity.
