Story

“The 2014 vintage offered great challenges for the vintner, the vineyards and the cellar. The late ripening Riesling grapes benefited from the weather change end of October, and the last sunrays facilitated aroma development in the berries. We cleaned out the Riesling grapes by hand in the vineyard; this was a very tedious process that needed a lot of time. In the cellar we pressed and processed the grapes immediately, but the overall yield of the 2014 vintage was lower than usual because of the adverse weather conditions. However, the laborious selection of the grapes has proved worthwhile: we have produced high-quality wines. The Riesling wines have distinct aromas and intense fruit. The tasting shows much density and concentration.” Winemaker’s  notes, more at SybilleKuntz.de
