Riesling vom Kalkstein BiB

2,25 L

The vineyards for the Riesling vom Kalkstein are located in the north of the Pfalz in the area called the Mittelhardt-Deutsche Weinstrasse.  Most of the vineyards are around Kallstadt and slightly further north around Kindenheim. Here, as the name Kallstadt infers, the soils are rich in limestone (German = Kalkstein), resulting from ancient sea sedimentations with skeletal fragments of marine organisms. This type of soil is relatively thin and porous and encourages the vines to root deeply, giving very fine and elegant wines.
This Riesling vom Kalkstein has a certain tight minerality and lean, taut body which lends great finesse and elegance. Showing refreshing lemon and grapefruit aromas with a citrus-fresh twist on the finish in its youth, the wine will develop with time, showing more evolved flavours of baked apple, honey and ripe melon, but still with a bracing lick of well-integrated acidity.
