Alc: 12,5 %Vol., Rs: 5,9 g/l, Acidity: 7,4 g/l

This Riesling comes from the heart of the Schützenhaus site, a vineyard in which grapes ripen earlier than elsewhere and yields small, loose clusters of berries. A true model of a traditional, dry Rheingau Riesling. A worthy successor of the three winner vintages 2013, 2014 and 2015 awarded by Mundus Vini as “Best dry Riesling”. Classic dry, expressive Rheingau Riesling with strenght and opulence.
