Zahel Riesling Ried Obere Schoss Nussberg 2019
Ried Obere Schoss is the filet piece of Vienna's famed Nussberg Vineyard, a site that has built its reputation over many centuries. 40 year old vines grow in sandy limestone soils with ideal southern exposure. Careful hand harvest, 6 day maceration and slow spontaneous fermentation give way to maturation split between amphora and used Stockinger barrels. 10 months on the fine lees. No fining/filtering. Minimal sulfur. Biodynamic.
Totally dry and from the fantastic 2019 vintage. Textured fresh fennel and cut grass, floral and crisp green apple notes.
