Description

Geyerhof Ried Kirchensteig 1er Cru Riesling 2018

Geyerhof Ried Kirchensteig Riesling is taut and elegant, full of finesse. Gold colour in the glass. Fine peach aromas, mandarin orange and tangerine peel with a hint of herbaceous spice fill the nose. Elegant and juicy on the palate with a good minerality, fresh acidity and big honeycomb texture. Ripe mandarin and lime flavours with a generous dose of peach and honey. Excellent ageing potential.

100% Riesling. The fruit comes from Geyerhof’s Ried Kirchensteig vineyard, known as one of the best sites on the southern side of the Danube. The vineyard is southwest facing and sits at an altitude of 280–285 metres. The vineyard got its name “Kirchensteig”, which translates to “the path to church”, because villagers have been strolling past this old vineyard site on their way to Sunday church for many years. The vines anchor themselves in a thin layer of topsoil with very poor granulite soils beneath. Its cool location and poor granulite soils is exactly why Riesling can unfurl its full potential here.

Manual harvesting of the fruit in small boxes at the beginning of November. Following this, the grapes go through whole bunch pressing. Slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks, ageing on full lees for 19 months. Vegan.

Ageing potential: Drink until 2031.
