WINE OF THE DAY 3/14/16 2008 Richter Riesling Brut Sekt $11.99

March 14, 2016

Vineyard: Mülheim Sonnenlay: This vineyard is situated on the west south-western slope on the slate mountain that formerly was surrounded by the Mosel river before it did switch into its present river bed. The terroir consists of fresh weathering clay slate with alluvial stones and gravels wasted in. Age of vines is about 40 years. The wine: Grapes were handpicked in middle of October 2008. Grapes were extremely healthy and ripe. After uncrushed pressing the juice fermented in traditional oak barrels (Fuders). Tirage bottling for second fermentation was done in February 2010. Processing corresponds to the traditional method (méthode Champenoise). This wine did rest on the second yeast for 18 months. Eiswein grape juice was used as dosage to ensure some rounded and elegant character. Analytical data: 12,5% alc./vol. • 7,0 g/l residual sugar • 5,7 g/l acidity. Taste: This sparkling Riesling shows a bouquet of ripe apples, apricot and slate minerals. Its flavour reveals spicy and animating minerals, cleanses your palate and finishs well balanced with zesty dryish fruit acid. A full bodied, wide and lasting taste experience
