Weingut Vollenweider Felsenfest Riesling 2017

$38.00

Felsen means ‘rock’ and Fest means ’festival’ in German, and refers to the rocky (slate) soil in which the vines grow. The fruit is sourced from all three of Daniel’s vineyards, so despite being an entry-level, or estate wine as they are referred to in Germany, it’s essentially a declassified Grand Cru, which is incredible for this price. The wine was fermented to a dry level, in stainless steel to retain freshness. The nose offers delicate aromas of pear, quince, star fruit, herbs and fine spices, yet the palate is very dry with incredible stony minerality.
