Messmer Riesling vom Schiefer einzig & artig (6 BOTTLE CASE DEAL)
This product is currently sold out.
A fine Riesling sourced from the grey slate soils of Burrweiler Schawer - which confers elegance. minerality and a touch of salinity to the wine.
Grapes are sourced from Riesling vines cultivated in the Burrweiler Schawer, which has steep slopes and grey slate soils. Slate is unusual in the Pfalz region and only extends around 6 hectares in total. On the south-east slopes it stores the sun's heat, and at night this is passed to the vine roots. After hand-harvesting and selection spontaneous fermentation occurs and the wine spends 2 years on lees.
A fine Riesling with slate and apple-skin characters, backed by minerality. The palate has depth and complexity from extended lees ageing.
Try this with Asian style pork or poultry dishes.
