Wine Notes: A bone-dry Riesling from one of the most respected German winemakers, who has been voted the best winemaker in Germany several times.

Wine Details

They say that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Wittmann’s ESTATE Riesling serves as that calling card, introducing the elegance and sense of place for which their Rheinhessen estate is known. The grapes are all grown in their vineyards, cultivated bio-dynamically, and tended by hand. An exceptionally food-friendly wine both in its youth and as it matures.

High-quality wine doesn’t come on its own. It starts in the vineyards with yield reduction, hand selection of the fruit, and other biodynamic practices throughout the year. In the cellar, gentle pressing is followed by traditional vinification methods. The wine is primarily fermented in traditional large barrels.

Alcohol Grade: 12%

Aging/ Vinification: The harvest is done manually and completely destemmed. The grapes undergo a short skin maceration before fermentation with native yeast in stainless steel tanks.

Best to have it: 5-8ºC

Size: 750 ml
