Sauvignon Blanc Ried Edelschuh 2015

Wine description:

Ripe aromas and flavors, dense, finely woven, great spicy notes, minerally - with a huge life ahead


Location:

Edelschuh: From this historical vineyard, which was already referred in 1322 as one of the best single vineyards, we get very mineral driven wines with outstanding ageing potential. Through the high sea altitude we are able to pick very ripe grapes, which still have a very good acidity structure. Through the extreme steepness of up to 90% we are just able to work by hand or with rope winch machines. The very meagre slate soil is very much reflected in the wines.


Soil:

Red and blue-black slate (paleozoic slate)
