An outstanding Riesling kabinett that you should not miss. The grapes are surprisingly harvested from Niersteiner Pettenthal, the prestigious site from the region best known for the soil Rotschiefer. Because of such grape quality, the wine has a precise structure and luscious mid palate, expressing flavours of peach, pear and white flower with a soft touch of minerality.
