Riesling Grand Cru Rosacker 2015

The summit of our production!
  • The vintage
  • Early ripening and well-managed yields made 2015 a successful vintage! After a very mild winter, spring continued to be very clement and easy. The warmer months of May and June encouraged vine growth. A July heatwave (often more than 40°C) with no rain slowed the vegetative cycle considerably. Happily, in mid-August, the rain fell and permitted the vines to grow and the grapes to ripen. By end of August, the vines were in perfect condition. The weeks before harvest were sunny with cool nights and light showers. The grapes matured perfectly.

  • Tasting notes
  • An intense and deep citrus nose. Ripe and powerful on the palate with a long clean finish. If there wasn't a slightly aggressive hint of tannins at the finish, this would have been even higher.
    Marries marvelously with fine fish and white meats in creamy sauces.
