James Suckling, 93 Points 

"This remarkable dry Mosel riesling squares the circle, by pumping out the ripe-peach and heady, floral aromas and showing beautiful balance of juicy fruit with lively acidity, yet only 10.5% alcohol. I love the tingling minerality and spritz at the finish. Maybe Einstein could explain how that’s possible?" 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Schieferkristall, meaning slate crystal, is 100% estate Riesling from steep vineyards along the Ruwer (a tributary of the Mosel) with a unique microclimate and distinctive Devonian slate soils. Gentle pressing, followed by fermentation in stainless steel under controlled temperature and long lees contact for almost six months. The Schieferkristall features a delicate yet dense apricot aroma and a polished slate tone. Pure, fresh and vital on the palate, it is a substantial, tightly structured yet juicy and persistently aromatic Ruwer Kabinett (though it is not declared as such for ask-the-VDP reasons) with tension and a stimulatingly salty finish. More serious, complex and structured compared to Bruno." 

Alcohol: 10.5%
