Jürgen Ellwanger 2022 Schnaiter Altenberg Riesling Grand Cru dry white wine

Jürgen Ellwanger 2022 Schnaiter Altenberg Riesling Grand Cru dry

Regular price £37.15
"The vineyard is an amphitheatre, very steep. Half of the wine went through spontaneous fermentation.

Smells of peaches, essence of peaches. Singing with purity. The fruit has fresh intensity, building sweeter and more tropical, peaches to papaya, and then fine peppery dustiness. Long, mineral line on the finish. Despite being so young, it's already delicious."

Tasted by Tamlyn Currin,
wine writer for Jancis Robinson

The Schnaiter Altenberg Riesling originates from a vineyard with VDP.GROSSE LAGE classification - where Germany’s finest wines grow. The vineyard, with its soil rich in sandstone, produces a unique wine that is expressive of its origin.

This Riesling Grand Cru has aromas of white peach, ripe mandarin, yellow tropical fruits and honey. On the palate, it has juicy hints of young pineapple, as well as depth, complexity and a spicy structure, which ensures a full-bodied mouthfeel.

An impressive and complex Riesling with great aging potential.

Food Recommendation: This dry Riesling pairs well with fish and poultry.
