Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt Scharzhofberger Riesling Spatlese 2015

Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, GermanyThe steep, south facing Scharzhofberg vineyard is one of the Saar's most famous and climatically coolest site. With 6.6 ha, Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt numbers among the largest owners with holdings in the site. Loess, coarse gray and reddish slate (up to 70%) contribute to the characteristic minerality of this site. This striking wine certainly complies, with ample crushed stone, wet slate, honeyed pear, quince, yellow apple, crystalline lemon and earthy, dried herbs filtered throughout.Tasted: 06 July 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 45.00 private wine shops Producer: Reichsgraf Von KesselstattDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
