Riesling Trocken "Handwerk"
The “Handwerk” line is hand-crafted as the name suggests: biodynamically grown, manually harvested and vinified in small quantities. You want a dry white but don’t want to give up the fruit, ripeness or sex appeal of Riesling? BOOM.
This is an explosively flavorful and energetic bottling, loaded with pit fruit propelled by succulent acidity. The flavors go on for a startlingly long time. Part of its secret is sourcing from very high altitude slopes (yes, Mosel-like elevations in a sunny Pfalz style!) and a fertile soil cocktail of hummus and loam mixed with the most hilariously named soil type in Germany: landschneckenkalk, which translates to "land snail chalk." A richer, more serious wine than the liter at 12% alcohol. This is one of the most exciting Riesling discoveries we made in 2017!
