Riesling Grand Cru Osterberg 2016

An excellent terroir wine!
  • The vintage
  • After several low yield harvests, the 2016 production was normal.
    Initially, cool, wet temperatures slowed the spring vegetative growth greatly. Fortunately, the weather improved but residual moisture created perfect conditions for mildew. Extra vigilance was demanded to protect the crop. An August heatwave and subsequent warm weeks until harvest created water
    Harvest began on September 20th and finished 7 weeks later.
