2020 Steinterrassen Riesling
The quality of this dry Riesling is the link between Gut Hermannsberg’s VDP.Ortsweine and VDP.GrosseGewächse. The base for this vineyard blend derives from the steep slope Grand Cru vineyard “RosselNiederhausen”. The main aromas of this Riesling are Amalfi-lemon and wild herbs, and its elegant structure and complexity are captivating. This “2020 Steinterassen Riesling” is an astonishing elegant dry wine which is just starting to show its full potential.
Due to this special microclimate in the “RosselNiederhausen” you will find an extraordinary quality of grapes. Our “Steinberg Niederhausen” has a barren ground with volcanic origin. The rhyolite soils from the time of the “Rotliegenden” have a high amount of iron giving the “Rotenberg Altenbamberg” its name. This wine is as diverse as the soils.
A great food pairing for the “2020 Riesling Steinterrassen” is red meat, like Entrecote or Roast beef. Accompanied by grilled Vegetables and a creamy Risotto.
