Halbstück Riesling trocken 2016 - Knipser
More information
The

half-piece Riesling from Knipser is a tribute to matured wines, since it only comes on the market after 4 years of bottle maturity. In the glass comes this exceptional Palatinate white wine with fine golden yellow. The first nose shows ripe mirabelles, apricots and tropical nuances of pineapple and candied orange and lemon peel. Over time, bitter-spicy notes of oak leaves, fine oak wood nuances and mineral notes of chalk are added.

On the palate, the Knipser half-piece Riesling is exceptionally firmly knitted, with firm acidity and characterized by a fresh, mineral style. This Riesling is a real revelation. Clear, precise, yet wonderfully aromatic and yet razor-sharp. A touch of petrol and a delicate but really delicate extract sweetness carries into an immensely long and mineral finale.

Vinification of the Riesling half-piece by Knipser

The grapes for this German top Riesling from Knipser grow around Laumersheim. Attention is paid to a balanced selection of older vines from top vineyards. After harvesting, the grapes migrate to the press and must in 600-litre wooden barrels made of Palatinate oak. These half-piece barrels are the real German barrel classic and offer an excellent balance of micro-oxidation and oak aroma. After fermentation, the Knipser half matures for another months in the barrel and finally for 4 whole years in the bottle.

Food recommendation for the Knipser half Riesling

Enjoy this ripened lace giant with veal, Vitello Tonnato or freshwater fish such as trout or pike.
