Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel followed by ten months on the fine lees. aromas of rich yellow fruits like plum and quince, pear and herbs. Very complex with an elegant structure, silky texture, and a chalky mineral saline finish.
A blend from several organically farmed parcels around Kiedrich comprised of varying soils including sand, loam, loess, quartzite, and slate. Fermented with native yeasts in tank with 8 months on the fine lees (per importer). Bottled as a Trocken QbA in 2020.

Anyone who doubts the greatness of the best wines from the 2020 vintage in Germany should taste
this extremely complex and pristine dry riesling. Enormous minerality and structure, in spite of only
being medium-bodied. So finely nuanced. Very long finish, in which slatey and chalky elements are
beautifully interwoven with the white-peach and Amalfi-lemon aromas. Enormous aging potential.
From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink or hold.
