Wittmann 100 Hills Riesling Trocken 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine: "The 100 Hills Riesling is made by Philip Wittmann of the famed Weingut Wittman estate in the Rheinhessen. Wittmann is hailed as one of Germany's top wine estates, putting 300 years of family experience to work producing world class organic and biodynamic wines from the famed Morstein vineyard. The 100 Hills Riesling is made with the same care and attention to detail as the estate wines." "There is intensive vineyard care during the year, low yields and rigorous hand selection of the grapes. The wines ferment in traditional wood vats or stainless steel tank. The slow fermentations sometimes continue well into the following year." - Importer Producer: "The quality of Philipp Wittmann's wines has helped raise the profile of the Rheinhessen, the region where his family estate began in 1663. Wittmann has used organic viticulture for over fifteen years and biodynamic farming since 2003. He feels, "Only old vines can give the true mineral character and low yields necessary to make great wines."" "Wittmann's vineyards include Grosses Gewachs Morstein, Kirchspiel and Aulerde. Favoring a drier, trocken style, Wittmann prefers wines "with more minerality than fruit. Riesling is a grape that should show elegance." There is intensive vineyard care during the year, low yields and rigorous hand selection of grapes. The slow fermentations sometimes continue well into the following year. Like well-made Burgundies, Wittmann wines show great terroir transparency." "With aromatic, round fruit supported by snappy acidity, all Wittmann wines have dazzling balance and length, especially the drier styles." - Importer
