This comes from Zellenberg's clayey limestone soils in an east-facing vineyard that, due to winds, is slower ripening. Aged in large oak for two years, the 2019 Riesling AmZelle shows an intense, golden-yellow color and exhibits a dense, complex and aromatic nose of perfectly ripe fruit (yellow plums) intertwined with lemony notes of crushed stones and lemony chutney. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, perfectly round, refined and elegant Riesling with a long, intense and saline, finely tannic and lemon-bitter, uplifting finish with ripe pears on the aftertaste. This is a perfectly balanced Riesling that already drinks beautifully, but it can be aged for 20 to 25 years. 14% stated alcohol. Natural cork.
