100% Riesling hand harvested fermented and matured in stainless steel vats and large oak barrels.
Full-bodied, mineral Riesling wine with a fruit nose of great finesse and classic acidity.
The sloping vineyards of the Leistenberg are characterised predominantly by clay slate soils. This dry, blackish-grey slate is perfect for producing superbly elegant wines. This characterful dry Riesling from these soils is named after this ancient rock. Tonschiefer translates as clay slate.
"It opens with a pure bouquet with lovely cool, piquant aromas of wet slate and ripe white fruits. On the palate, this is a juicy-piquant, clear and fresh Riesling with exquisite purity and lingering salinity on the finish. It is fresh and very stimulating in its bright and elegant fruit. The finish is quite powerful." 90/100 Stephan Reinhardt The Wine Advocate
