Gustavshof Riesling 'Dittelsheim' Trocken Bio 2021

This is a fine dry Riesling from the limestone and marl soils on the Dittelsheimer Kloppberg. It has a nice, distinct fruitiness with aromas of ripe quinces, yellow apples and a hint of ripe peach. On the palate, the acidity is attractive and ripe, present and harmonious. Despite its volume, the mouthfeel is youthful, subtly sparkling with a long pleasant finish.
The characteristics of this biodynamic Riesling are classic to the grapes and soil of the vineyard. The grapes are harvested after a particularly long ripeness. The young wine is kept on the lees until bottling, giving it great volume and a long shelf life.
