Weingut Winter Kloppberg Riesling, Rheinhessen

A Großes Gewächs (Great Growth) wine: a top-level, dry wine from a designated VDP site. The Riesling grapes are grown in vineyards on the Kloppberg hill, populated by fully-mature vines, some planted in the 1970s. The vineyards here are mostly made up of heavy, marl and clay soils with traces of limestone. The grapes are hand harvested, late in autumn, to ensure maximum phenolic development; the cool breezes extending hang time. Afterwards the grapes are macerated for four to six hours with fermentation beginning spontaneously. This wine has a vibrant elegance, complexity and ripe white fruit flavours, before finishing dry with mineral notes.
