Junger Riesling 2008

Current Wines | Wines from 2008


A bottle of Junger Riesling

At the beginning of every harvest we set out to pick the Junger Riesling. For this wine we choose only ripe and highly aromatic grapes which are not yet too sweet. The fermentation happens especially slow and gente to conserve the delicate flavours of the Junger Riesling. Within only a few weeks a juvenile, light and highly aromatic young wine emerges that is bottled and ready to drink in early November. Therefore this wine is the first messenger of a new vintage and eagerly awaited by many wine enthusiasts. Its natural fruitiness offers a glimpse of the upcoming wine qualities and additionally the Junger Riesling is always a pleasure to drink on its own.
