2018 "Scharzhofberger Pergentsknopp P" Riesling trocken GG, Weingut VAN VOLXEM
Rarely before have we held in our hands such ripe grapes that smell of wonderfully exotic fruits and mace. It was worth waiting until well into November to harvest. The fragrance already reveals a symbiosis of deep mineral spiciness, dense creaminess and the complexity of the finest slate layers.
In the glass, this wine unfolds like a large red burgundy in all its complexity and seductively silky smoothness. We are thankful to be allowed to experience the emergence of such a wine in one of the best white wine locations in the world.
