2015 Sonnenuhr Rothlay Dry Riesling
This was fermented in traditional 1000l oak barrels called `Fuder`, some of which are dating back to 1959! As opposed to the vineyard name suggesting red slate, this actually comes from a blue slate vineyard neighbouring the famous Zeltinger Sonnenuhr. On the nose this offers delicate aromas of peach and green apple as well as fragrant herbs such as coriander. On the palate this is rich in extract, still has hints of yeast and herbs at the moment as well as a striking slate minerality. It is still youthful and will benefit from a year or two in bottle. Drink from 2017 -2025.
