Knebel 2022 Röttgen Riesling Spätlese fruity white wine

Knebel 2022 Röttgen Riesling Spätlese fruity

Regular price £47.35
"Remarkably pure. Like a flourish of silver trumpets, the acidity shining off the ripe curvature of fruit. It's as if the grapevines undertook precision engineering of flavour and sweetness to deliver a wine that barely tastes sweet at all. You could almost drink this like a dry wine. Thrumming with energy and urgency. Prismic prettiness throwing shafts of light that reach long and last forever. A wine like this makes me think, yet again, that there is not enough Spätlese in the world"
Tasted by Tamlyn Currin,
wine writer for Jancis Robinson

A very dense, concentrated and fine Spätlese, produced from the late harvest. This wine has an immense abundance of fruity flavour.

Grapes were grown on 50-60 year old vines in the Röttgen VDP.GROSSE LAGE (Grand Cru) classified vineyard. The south / south-west facing vineyard is steep and terraced, with soil rich in iron and slate.

Grapes were grown sustainable and carefully harvested by hand. The wine was fermented using natural yeast.
