Winemaker Notes: 

"Roter Riesling is a natural mutation of Riesling that was first noticed about 200 years ago.  A winemaker in the Rheingau noticed some vines that had clusters with a range of red splotches on the berries to berries that had a pink tint to the them.  The winemaker picked and vinified those clusters separately and found that there were both aromas and flavors of "red fruits" in the wine, such as raspberries, strawberries, and cherries that are not usually noticeable in Riesling and also a slightly fuller body.  The mutation has been cultivated on a very limited basis since then and there are currently only about 30 acres of Roter Riesling vines in the Rheingau.

Aromas for the 2020 Roter Riesling include strawberries, raspberries, cherries, pink grapefruit, honeysuckle, lilac, and pink roses.  Flavors include strawberries, raspberries, cherries, red peaches and plums, and hints of watermelon.  There is a medium to full body, perfect balance and acidity, and a full, refreshing, and minerally finish."
