The ‘estate’ Riesing from Kloster Eberbach, this is sourced from various sites in the 230 hectares under vine around and adjacent to the abbey. Grapes are picked at full ripeness, gently pressed and fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel, resting for a few months on the lees prior to bottling.
Fresh and punchy from the off, the nose pings with stone-fruit and grapefruit aromas. Fresh and steely, there’s a pop of pear and passionfruit cut with lime, with a gentle acidity keeping the palate supple, minerality extending the length with floral elements. This is technically just off-dry with 8g residual sugar per litre, but tastes dry on the finish.
A classic, modern-style dry Riesling for the Rheingau with plenty of white peach and pear, but also floral and herbal notes. The medium body is brimming with fruit and moderate acidity makes this easy to enjoy. Everything fits very neatly. Good length, too. 90 points.
