Starts out with tropical fruit aromas on the nose, pineapple, mango, and is rich and round in the mouth finishing with good acidity in a dry, yet crisp finish.
Owned by Christine Lucas, sister to Nik Weis, this estate produces outstanding Riesling from important vineyard sites in the Pfalz. This estate was established over fifty years ago and has a much warmer climate than the Mosel with different soil. The resultant wines tend to be drier in style with a little bit higher alcohol levels. It is located in the Rhine valley and protected to the North and the West by the Hunsrueck Mountains. That’s what makes the climate there almost Mediterranean. The soil is heavier and less stony than in the Mosel. They don’t have slate like in the Mosel, they have volcanic, glacial and river sediments. The current vintage release of this wine is made from Organically farmed grapes!
Their philosophy is to employ environmentally sound viticultural techniques, and in the cellar to use the least amount of intervention possible. Christine has obtained an organic certificate for her wines from the Deutschepradikat. The Pfalz region is known to make Riesling that is a bit drier in style and fuller in body, and this wine is no exception.
Pairs well with pasta, mature and hard cheese, and aperitif.
