Luscious and fresh all at the same time. Beautiful nose of citrus, smoke and peach. Quite full bodied for an estate wine. Very complex palate of limes, peaches, kiwi and pink grapefruit. Mineral notes drive the finish. This could only come from Germany.
High-quality wine doesn’t come on its own. It starts in our vineyards with yield reduction, hand selection of the fruit and a variety of other biodynamic-friendly measures throughout the year. In the cellar, gentle pressing is followed by traditional vinification methods. The wines are primarily fermented in traditional large barrels. Our Gutswein-level Riesling delivers a remarkable portrait of its origins: the limestone-rich soils of Westhofen. Rigorous manual labour in the vineyard and traditional fermentation in large wooden barrels establish this wine’s pedigree as a “true” Wittmann. Citrus, grapefruit and wild herbs in the nose. Deep, yellow Riesling fruit aromas mingle with a focused, almost salty, limestone minerality. – Philipp Wittmann
