2021 Deidesheimer Leinhöhle Riesling dryRegular price €19,00
Ripe Abate Pear and yellow fruit dominate the nose, the warmth of Leinhöhle is unmistakable. On the palate, the Riesling is juicy, powerful while remaining wonderfully balanced. The moderate acidity is harmoniously integrated and is
surrounded by a subtle grapefruit freshness on the finish.
The VDP.Erste Lage is most easily compared to the French Premier Cru classification in Burgundy. VDP.Erste Lage consist of dry Rieslings from top, classified vineyard locations. From the yields and the development, our VDP.Erste Lage hardly differs from a Grosses Gewachs, the only difference is the individual location of the vineyards.
Here too the site name gives the bearing. The women of Deidesheim used to use this warmest of sites to bleach their linen cloths. Its 100% south facing and sloped location mean that air temperatures of 50°C and more are not a rarity. Grapes that flourish here incorporate this heat, have mature fruit aromas and sophisticated, balanced acidity.
