The grapes for this wine come from a single vinyeard called Klosterschaffnerei, with limestone and slime soils (with shell sediments). This Riesling is dry but made of a late harvest grapes, although it does not belong to a German classification it could be compared to a dry Auslese. The harvest was made in 3 times (triages), and ended on 30th of September, only the best and most mature grapes were selected. After a 12 hour maceration the fermentation with indigenous yeast started. It took the wine a very long time to finish the fermentation and it was finally bottled in May, 2015.
This vintage was rather dry and cooler than other years, thereofre white wines from 2014 age better in the bottle. Balanced and complex, even though rather elegant yet austere, with it's 13º abv and some 6 grams of residual sugar evolves nicely in the glass.
Total SO2 is 20 mg.
Only 151 bottles were filled from this vintage so this is virtually the only possibility to try this wine.
