Wirsching 2020 Iphöfer Julius-Echter-Berg Silvaner Grand Cru dry

Regular price £42.60

" A full fruity nose paired with a wonderfully cool, juicy style."

It's the first-class Franconian site, "Julius-Echter-Berg", where fantastic wines such as their Silvaner Grand Cru come from. It ranks among their best.

This Silvaner has an intense bouquet and a full body. At the moment it is still a bit closed in taste, but already presents an astonishing range of flavours. FIne hints of yellow fruits, spicy aroma and a clear and distinctive mineral tone, very typical for their Silvaners, making this wine a true indulgence.

To create such a premium wine a great of work was necessary in both the wine cellar and the vineyard. In the early stage of ripeness, for example, they divided each grapes to ensure perfect conditions for the future vegeration prosecc and to reduce the number of grapes on the vine. Enabling the growth and efficiency of the vine to concentrate on the few grapes left.

As a young wine, this Grand Cru is already one of the pure indulgence. However, its best times are yet to come. In about 10 years it will have reached its peak. A mature with devotee will open in the 20 years' time with the greatest pleasure of experiencing its aromas which. will then have developed to perfection.
