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.
"The 2018 Riesling Trocken Tonschiefer is ripe, clear and generous on the bright and juicy nose. Lush and piquant on the palate, this is a round yet crystalline, persistently salty Riesling with stunning power." 89/100 Stephan Reinhardt The Wine Advocate
