Heymann-Löwenstein - Schieferterrassen Riesling 2015
Grown on Slate Stone compounded soil & on the steep slopes in Winningen - Mosel region in Germany, “Schieferterrassen” is blended from various vineyards in Winningen & Kobern, mixed up with different kinds of Slate as well as declassified from Grand Cru - Grosses Gewachs. And in the cellar, leaving the juice about 24 to 48 hours skin contact before fermenting close to full dryness, winemaker chose to add 10 to 20% botrytis fruit to his dry wines.
Pale Straw color shown in the glass. Generous flood of fragrance aromas which are honeyed, ripe stone fruit, citrus peel and a hints of honeysuckle floral notes. One the palate there are very fine nuances in between fruit and minerals ; Moderate acidity with well balanced sweetness by residual sugar and medium body ; Refreshing mouth feeling, smoky & wet stone character can be found too and it came with sweetly finish at the end.
In conclusion, this is a perfumed wine contained elegancy which is showing great promise. For me it is fined structure, friendly and approachable. It can be kept a couple of years more for development but I will choose to drink fresh. Chinese Cuisine is highly recommended for this wine to go with, but I am also very happy to finish it alone ~ !
