NEW RELEASE FROM THE GREAT 2016 VINTAGE!

"A finely-nuanced medium-bodied dry riesling with plenty of floral delicacy, but also a firm mineral backbone and a long filigree finish. Drink or hold. Made from organic grapes and Fair'n Green certified. From the excellent Leistenberg site. Screw cap." (JS)

Winery Notes:
The dry wine from the sandy slate hillside Leistenberg (from which we also see a Kabinett later on), this was rather adamant as a cask sample but will gentle-up after bottling. It showed a black char of slate and a gravelly mineral finish, somewhat straitlaced. -Terry Theise
