This Riesling Premier Cru has subtle fruity notes, a spicy and herbaceous aroma and long lasting mineralic flavour. It is powerful, yet elegant.
The Iphöfer Julius-Echter-Berg vineyard is located on the south-western flank of the Schwanberg. The south-facing slopes, with a gradient of up to 60%, have measured surface temperatures of 70°C, thus making it the hottest vineyard in the Franken region.
The Keuper rich soil is made up of sedimentary rock with gypsum veins. The Keuper gives the wine its power and fullness, like the opulent marshland in which the rick was formed. The older the vines, the better this "terroir" can be tasted. Due to the soil, the gypsum, gives this Riesling a milder acidity and distinct minerality.
This Premier Cru dry white wine, made from Riesling - a noble grape variety - has fine fruit aromas and a great elegance is grown in the best areas in Franconia.
This wine has a clear fruit play of peach and apricot and is balanced in taste. This citrus freshness and the well-integrated acidity give it freshness and a perfect elegance.
Food recommendation: The perfect companion to seafood and meat dishes,such as game.
