Description

The fruit for this young Rhine Riesling is the first crop of a vineyard called Hercegföld (‘Prince’s Land’). Summer apple, citrus notes, vibrant acidity, firm structure. The tasting experience is accompanied by a pleasing saline minerality and the fresh scent of the flowers of the meadow. A charismatic wine.
