Captivatingly nuanced Riesling from Maxim's unique vineyard planted in Herrenberg in 1986.
Terroir, production method and maturation: Maximin Herrenberg is a south-facing hillside garden with ungrafted Riesling vines that are more than 100 years old. The yield of the orchards is only about 40hl/ha. The soil consists of a rare and very iron-rich red slate, which brings strength and multidimensionality to the wine. Manual harvesting. The wine fermented spontaneously with the help of wild yeasts without temperature control and matured in traditional Moselian füder oak vats on lees for 100 days. Residual sugar 7.2 g/l, acids 6.7 g/l.
Use: Fried scallops and herb pesto.
Description: Fascinating and extremely elegant dry riesling, which stands out with ripe stone fruit and herbal and floral notes. A nuanced and energetic taste that leaves a long, mineral aftertaste.
